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
