Sensitivity analysis

To open the COMKAT GUI Sensitivity Analysis Tool, click Tools->Sensitivity Analysis.
A GUI will pop up as below: Docu comkat GUI 17.JPG
The sensitivity functions are calculated with the input function and a set of parameters. In this GUI, you may adjust parameters to see how the outputs and sensitivity functions would be affected. To view a combination of functions, press "ctrl" and right click on the items on the same time. After selecting all the desired files, press "Apply".

Analysis of runs

The analysis of runs can be used to examine the "randomness" of fitting residues. After you fit the data, click "Tools"=>"Analysis of runs" if you want to perform this analysis. The tool window looks like this:

And some analysis results are printed in the command window:

mu =


runs =


sigma =


z =


pvalue =


You may also use the function "runsTest.m" under comkatroot\utilities.


The tools for model simulation

To perform the model simulation, click "Tools"=>"Simulation tool".

The simulation can be done in two ways:

  1. Generate the model output with specific noise level or noise function
  2. Generate noisy model output and fit it to get parameter estimates.
