Cside 2018: Competitive statistical inference for differential equations 26th Nov 2018, University of Glasgow Mathematics and Statistics Building, Room 311B
Mon, 03 Sep 2018 13:15:00 BST
A report on the event will be available soon: Differential equations are a powerful way of providing an observed system a mathematical description. However, the act of inferring the parameters that govern the equations from noisy data, especially in a timely fashion, is challenging. The main objective of Cside is to assess in a competitive setting what inference methods in this area are currently the state of the art read more..........
