Sensitivity analysis has become a natural step in the uncertainty analysis framework. As there is no general sensitivity measure that would capture all information on impact of input factors on model output, analysts tend to combine various measures to obtain a broader image of interactions between different modes. This article concentrates on the correlation ratio, demonstrates methods for calculating this quantity efficiently and accurately, and compares the results. A new method inspired by…

Global Sensitivity Analysis with Small Sample Sizes: Ordinary Least Squares Approach.

A new version of global sensitivity analysis coupled with tools from statistics, machine learning, and optimization can devise small sample sizes that allow for the accurate ordering of sensitivity coefficients for the first 10-30 most sensitive chemical reactions in complex chemical-kinetic mechanisms, and is particularly useful for studying the chemistry in realistic devices.

Sensitivity Analysis Of Model Output: Variance-based Methods Make The Difference

The methods that will be discussed and used to perform SA in this paper are called ‘Variancebased methods’, in that the variability, or uncertainty, associated with an important input parameter is propagated through the model resulting in a large contribution to the overall output variability.

Sensitivity Analysis as an Ingredient of Modeling

We explore the tasks where sensitivity analysis (SA) can be useful and try to assess the relevance of SA within the modeling process. We suggest that SA could considerably assist in the use of

The authors have developed a technique to numerically quantify importance of input variables including uncertainties to the output uncertainty, based on the concept of uncertainty reduction, which makes it practically possible to estimate the importance measure proposed by Hora and Iman (1986).

Probabilistic sensitivity analysis of complex models: a Bayesian approach

Summary.  In many areas of science and technology, mathematical models are built to simulate complex real world phenomena. Such models are typically implemented in large computer programs and are

Uncertainty and Sensitivity Analyses of a Dynamic Economic Evaluation Model for Vaccination Programs

The authors find that the magnitudes and rankings of sensitivity measures depend on the selected method(s) and make recommendations regarding the choice of method depending on the complexity of the model, number of uncertain inputs, and desired types of insights from the sensitivity analysis.

Practical Approaches To Construct RS-HDMR Component Functions

It is shown in an example that judicious use of orthonormal polynomials can provide a sampling saving, regardless of the dimension of the input variable space, in a quantitative model assessment and analysis tool.
