A Bayesian framework for adaptive selection, calibration, and validation of coarse-grained models of atomistic systems
K Farrell and JT Oden and D Faghihi, JOURNAL OF COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, 295, 189-208 (2015).
A general adaptive modeling algorithm for selection and validation of coarse-grained models of atomistic systems is presented. A Bayesian framework is developed to address uncertainties in parameters, data, and model selection. Algorithms for computing output sensitivities to parameter variances, model evidence and posterior model plausibilities for given data, and for computing what are referred to as Occam Categories in reference to a rough measure of model simplicity, make up components of the overall approach. Computational results are provided for representative applications. (C) 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
