Kernel Stein discrepancy minimization for MCMC thinning in cardiac electrophysiology

August 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is presented by the Bayesian Section of the Statistical Society of Australia Guest speaker: Dr Marina Riabiz, King's College, London Abstract: Calcium is the end-point intracellular signal driving cardiac myocyte contraction, and its dynamic is described through coupled ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) can be used to characterize the posterior distribution of the parameters of the cardiac ODEs, which can then serve as an experimental design for multi-scale models of the whole hearth. However, MCMC…
