The slash distribution is defined as the ratio of the normal (0,1) and uniform (0,1) distributions, and has been suggested for use in robust parameter estimation (e.
When the sample size is sufficiently large, the result of the parameter estimation with multiple co linearity still has the characteristic of non deviation, consistency and validity.
Single agent online parameter estimation may not be reliable enough for critical problems of collision avoidance control, particularly in circumstances that measurement's noise is unavoidable, and sensor malfunction is probable.
in their rejoinder is unusual in practice, other research designs may likewise entail different samples for parameter estimation and prediction.
So in this subsection, we pay our attention only on the parameter estimation.
A problem of parameter estimation can be converted into a problem of multidimensional optimization by constructing the proper fitness function.
The equation above is the standard parameter estimation model.
In this present work, we also developed a parameter estimation algorithm to obtain the unknown kinetic parameters related to the new initiator; however, differently from Kwark and Novak work, in this present article, the kinetic parameters were determined considering the Arrhenius' expressions, allowing to analyze the process at several different temperatures.
