Kernel Stein discrepancy minimization for MCMC thinning in cardiac electrophysiology

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…
