27
Inference of energetic physics ANU/CCFE/IPP developed a probabilistic framework based on Bayes’ theorem for validating models for equil. & mode structure Motivation: handle data from multiple diagnostics with strong model dependency provides a validation framework for different equilibrium models: e.g. Two fluid with rotation, multi-fluid, MHD with anisotropy yield uncertainties in inferred physics parameters (e.g. q profile) from models, data, and their uncertainties. Can be inverted : By reducing force-balance model uncertainty to zero, use as a technique to infer physics difficult to experimentally diagnose directly (e.g. Energetic particle pressure)
