Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

Parameter estimation is important in mathematical modeling. The Maximum Likelihood method can be used when the probability density function of observation is known. However, this assumption may not be satisfied in practice. To deal with this problem, a new parameter estimation method for dynamic systems is proposed using the entropy of probability density function for system output viable and two performance functions are also given. To illustrate the effectiveness of this method, HIV/AIDS model is taken as an example to evaluate simulation and results are encouraging.
