  1. 1. Calibration of Breast Cancer Natural History Models Using Approximate Bayesian Computation

    University essay from KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Oscar Bergqvist; [2020]
    Keywords : Approximate Bayesian Computation; ABC; breast cancer natural history models; random effects; Bayesian statistics; likelihood-free inference; Approximate Bayesian computation; ABC; natural history models för bröstcancer; random effects; bayesiansk statistik; likelihood-fri inferens;

    Abstract : Natural history models for breast cancer describe the unobservable disease progression. These models can either be fitted using likelihood-based estimation to data on individual tumour characteristics, or calibrated to fit statistics at a population level. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bayesian Parameterization in the spread of Diseases

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för beräkningsvetenskap

    Author : Robin Eriksson; [2017]
    Keywords : Bayesian Inference; likelihood-free; Markov chain Monte Carlo; Approximate Bayesian Computations; Synthetic likelihood; Epidemiology; disease modeling;

    Abstract : Mathematical and computational epidemiological models are important tools in efforts to combat the spread of infectious diseases. The models can be used to predict further progression of an epidemic and for assessing potential countermeasures to control disease spread. READ MORE

  3. 3. Likelihood-free inference and approximate Bayesian computation for stochastic modelling

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Oskar Nilsson; [2013]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : With increasing model complexity, sampling from the posterior distribution in a Bayesian context becomes challenging. The reason might be that the likelihood function is analytically unavailable or computationally costly to evaluate. READ MORE
