A Bifocal Measure of Expected Ambiguity in Bayesian Nonlinear Parameter Estimation

Summary: This article presents a new approach expected uncertainty calculation in Bayesian parameter estimates. Unlike the most common uncertainty calculation techniques, this new approach fully accounts for nonlinearity. Pairs of parameter estimates are analyzed, forming a bifocal measure of ambiguity that does not require any observational data. The model is equivalent to expected posterior variance for linear models and closely related for nonlinear models.
