Ollivier Hyrien - Stochastic Modeling in Immunology - Part II Lecture will continue starting with section III. of outline (below).

Ollivier Hyrien - Stochastic Modeling in Immunology - Part II

I - Why would you need mathematical models?

II - What types of models can we use?

    Deterministic models
    Stochastic models
      Some definitions
      Important classes of stochastic models
         Birth-&-death processes
         Branching processes 
         Stochastic differential equations

III - Estimation of model parameters

    Time-lapse data
    FACS data
    Least squares, maximum likelihood…
    Non-identifiability (trade-off between model complexity and estimability of model parameters)

IV - Discrete event simulation / agent-based models
