Modelling Numerical Systems with Two Distinct Labelled Output Classes

  title={Modelling Numerical Systems with Two Distinct Labelled Output Classes},
  author={Louise Kimpton and Peter Challenor and Daniel Williamson},
  journal={arXiv: Methodology},
We present a new method of modelling numerical systems where there are two distinct output solution classes, for example tipping points or bifurcations. Gaussian process emulation is a useful tool in understanding these complex systems and provides estimates of uncertainty, but we aim to include systems where there are discontinuities between the two output solutions. Due to continuity assumptions, we consider current methods of classification to split our input space into two output regions…

Screening, predicting, and computer experiments
This work model the output of the computer code as the realization of a stochastic process, allowing nonlinear and interaction effects to emerge without explicitly modeling such effects.
Bayesian Calibration of computer models
A Bayesian calibration technique which improves on this traditional approach in two respects and attempts to correct for any inadequacy of the model which is revealed by a discrepancy between the observed data and the model predictions from even the best‐fitting parameter values is presented.
Regression and Classification Using Gaussian Process Priors
Gaussian processes are in my view the simplest and most obvious way of defining flexible Bayesian regression and classification models, but despite some past usage, they appear to have been rather neglected as a general-purpose technique.
Approximations for Binary Gaussian Process Classification
We provide a comprehensive overview of many recent algorithms for approximate inference in Gaussian process models for probabilistic binary classification. The relationships between several
Composite Gaussian process models for emulating expensive functions
A new type of nonstationary Gaussian process model is developed for approximating computationally expensive functions. The new model is a composite of two Gaussian processes, where the first one
Bayesian History Matching of Complex Infectious Disease Models Using Emulation: A Tutorial and a Case Study on HIV in Uganda
A novel method that has the potential to improve the calibration of complex infectious disease models (hereafter called simulators) is presented in the form of a tutorial and a case study where the history match a dynamic, event-driven, individual-based stochastic HIV simulator is used, using extensive demographic, behavioural and epidemiological data available from Uganda.
Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning
The treatment is comprehensive and self-contained, targeted at researchers and students in machine learning and applied statistics, and deals with the supervised learning problem for both regression and classification.
Galaxy formation : a Bayesian uncertainty analysis.
A Bayes Linear approach is presented in order to identify the subset of the input space that could give rise to acceptable matches between model output and measured data, and was successful in producing a large collection of model evaluations that exhibit good fits to the observed data.
Analyzing Nonstationary Spatial Data Using Piecewise Gaussian Processes
In many problems in geostatistics the response variable of interest is strongly related to the underlying geology of the spatial location. In these situations there is often little correlation in the
