How to calibrate a computational model?

  • updated 4 days ago

Soon to come. Stay tuned!

Calibration is a process in which a priori unknown and estimated input descriptors of a computational model are refined through a numerical procedure, more specifically optimization routines in order to achieve a desired behavior of the model. This behavior is characterized by the Objective function to minimize. 

Objective function

The objective function is the function to me minimized: this means that when this evaluates to 1 for a simulation, the outputs of that simulation should match the expected behavior. 

The objective function is defined as a list of scoring sets and/or data tables, where having at least one item selected is mandatory.
