Simultaneous Determination of Tuning and Calibration Parameters for Computer Experiments

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] A statistical methodology is proposed for improving the ability of a computer simulation code to represent a physical phenomenon by simultaneously determining tuning and calibration parameters where data are available from a computer code and the associated physical experiment. The proposed model views the output as a Gaussian stochastic process with hyperpriors. The methodology is compared with an alternative approach and illustrated in a biomechanical engineering application. Supplemental materials are available online.
