By Nicolas Bouleau

Many fresh advances in modelling in the utilized sciences and engineering have all for the expanding value of sensitivity analyses. For a given actual, monetary or environmental version, elevated emphasis is now put on assessing the results of alterations in version outputs that outcome from small alterations or mistakes in either the hypotheses and parameters. The technique proposed during this publication is solely new and contours major features. even if super small, error own biases and variances. The tools provided listed here are capable, due to a selected differential calculus, to supply information regarding the correlation among error in assorted parameters of the version, in addition to information regarding the biases brought through non-linearity. The process uses very robust mathematical instruments (Dirichlet forms), which enable one to deal with blunders in limitless dimensional areas, akin to areas of features or stochastic procedures. the tactic is consequently acceptable to non-elementary versions alongside the traces of these encountered in sleek physics and finance. this article has been drawn from displays of study performed over the last ten years and that's nonetheless ongoing. The paintings was once provided at the side of a path taught together on the Universities of Paris 1 and Paris 6. The e-book is meant for college students, researchers and engineers with strong wisdom in likelihood concept.

F (u), G(v)] = ∂xi ∂xj i,j (3) the bilinear form E [u, v] = 21 E D equipped with the norm u is complete. D = [u, v] is “closed”. 1 Main definition and initial examples If, in addition (4) the constant function 1 belongs to D (which implies [1] = 0 by property (2)), we say that the error structure is Markovian. We will always write E [u] for E [u, u] and [u] for [u, u]. Comments and links with the corresponding mathematical literature. First of all let us remark that by the functional calculus (property (2)) we express that the operator satisfies formula (13) of Chapter I.

The chapter begins by giving examples of error structures that illustrate the general definition. It will then be shown how computations can be performed in error structures. Attention will also focus on the existence of densities. Finally, sufficient conditions for closability will be studied. 1. An error structure is a term ( , A, P, D, ) where ( , A, P) is a probability space, and (1) D is a dense subvector space of L2 ( , A, P) (also denoted L2 (P)); (2) is a positive symmetric bilinear application from D × D into L1 (P) satisfying “the functional calculus of class C 1 ∩ Lip”.

Consider the Cauchy law on R P= a dx π(a 2 + x 2 ) and the error structure S = R, B(R), P, D, where [u](x) = u 2 (x)α 2 (x) for u ∈ Cb1 (R) (space of bounded functions of class C 1 with bounded derivative) and (D, ) is the smallest closed extension of Cb1 (R), . The function α is assumed continuous and bounded. We want to study the image of S by the mapping U : x → {x}, where {x} denotes the fractional part of x. Clearly, U does not belong to D since U is discontinuous at integer points and functions in D can be shown as continuous (as soon as α does not vanish).
