Handling Uncertainties and Calibrating System Models with Wolfram Language
Special Event | FREE

Certification Levels: Attendance

In this Wolfram System Modeler webinar, the recently added functionality to calibrate, validate and visualize uncertainty in system models will be presented. You will learn to calibrate parameter values to match simulation results with real-world data and to visualize the uncertainty of key outputs resulting from uncertainty in parameters, initial values or inputs. Examples such as a Hohmann transfer orbit, calibration of rates in a chemical reaction and a simplified loudspeaker are explored.
