Ordinary differential equation (ODE) is an important tool to study the dynamics of a system of biological and physical processes. A central question in ODE modeling is to infer the significance of individual regulatory effect of one signal variable on another. However, building confidence band for ODE with unknown regulatory relations is challenging, and it remains largely an open question. In this article, we construct post-regularization confidence band for individual regulatory function in…

Ordinary differential equations (ODE) are widely used in modeling biological and physical processes in science. In this article, we propose a new reproducing kernel-based approach for estimation and
Reproducing kernel Hilbert space based estimation of systems of ordinary differential equations
A general approach to estimate the parameters of systems of differential equations measured with noise using a reproducing kernel Hilbert space approach based on the maximization of the penalized likelihood where the system of differential equation is used as a penalty.
Parameter estimation for differential equations: a generalized smoothing approach
A new method that uses noisy measurements on a subset of variables to estimate the parameters defining a system of non‐linear differential equations, based on a modification of data smoothing methods along with a generalization of profiled estimation is described.
Learning Large Scale Ordinary Differential Equation Systems
Learning large scale nonlinear ordinary differential equation (ODE) systems from data is known to be computationally and statistically challenging. We present a framework together with the adaptive
Optimal rate of direct estimators in systems of ordinary differential equations linear in functions of the parameters
Many processes in biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, and engineering are modeled by a system of differential equations. Such a system is usually characterized via unknown parameters and
Kernel Meets Sieve: Post-Regularization Confidence Bands for Sparse Additive Model
Abstract We develop a novel procedure for constructing confidence bands for components of a sparse additive model. Our procedure is based on a new kernel-sieve hybrid estimator that combines two most
Simultaneous Inference for High-Dimensional Linear Models
ABSTRACT This article proposes a bootstrap-assisted procedure to conduct simultaneous inference for high-dimensional sparse linear models based on the recent desparsifying Lasso estimator. Our
On the selection of ordinary differential equation models with application to predator-prey dynamical models.
The resulting method is shown to be an (asymptotically) oracle model selection method that selects the best predator-prey ODE to model a lynx and hare population dynamical system among some well-known and biologically interpretable ODE models.
A General Theory of Hypothesis Tests and Confidence Regions for Sparse High Dimensional Models
We consider the problem of uncertainty assessment for low dimensional components in high dimensional models. Specifically, we propose a decorrelated score function to handle the impact of high
