Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Optimal sampling time design by considering parameter uncertainties has rarely been considered in published research. In this work, the robust experimental design (RED) for sampling time selection is investigated. The aim is to exploit the sampling strategy using which the experiment can provide the most informative data for improving parameter estimation quality. With an enzyme reaction case study system, two global sensitivity analysis (GSA) approaches, the Morris screening method and the Sobol’s method, are firstly applied to find out the key parameters that have large influences to model outputs of interest. Then three different RED methods, the worst-case strategy, the Bayesian design, and the GSA-based approach, are developed to design the optimal sampling time schedule. Simulation results suggest that, among the three RED methods, the equally spaced sampling from the Bayesian design has the best robustness towards parameter uncertainties.
