Chapter 11. Parameter Estimation*
Abstract:
In this chapter the importance of parameter estimation in model development is illustrated through various applications related to reaction systems. In particular, rate constants in a reaction system are obtained through parameter estimation methods. These approaches often require the application of optimisation techniques coupled with dynamic solution of the underlying model.
Linear and nonlinear approaches to parameter estimation are investigated. There is also the application of maximum likelihood principles in the estimation of parameters, as well as the use of orthogonal collocation to generate a set of algebraic equations as the basis for parameter estimation.These approaches are illustrated ...
