ILIADIS 5 Checking identifiability Structural identifiability : given a hypothetical structure with unknown parameters, and a set of proposed experiments (not measurements !), would the unknown parameters be uniquely determinable from these experiments ?

Est+Opt CIRM 18/8/2009 A. ILIADIS 11 Optimal estimation Estimation is the operation of assigning a numerical values to unknown parameters, based on noise-corrupted observations. Organization of the variables : The observed drug concentrations over time, ( dimensional vector). The random parameters to be estimated, ( dimensional vector). Consider the joint pdf and then : the marginal is called prior pdf [ the marginal is not of interest ]. the conditional is called posterior pdf : the conditional leads to the likelihood function : MAP MLE
