ABSTRACT

In much of science and engineering, mathematical models are utilized. For a variety of reasons, a very common model is an ordinary linear differential equation with constant coefficients. Because of idealizations, it is important to study the effect of small errors in the modeling or estimation of the coefficients on the system output or response to a specified input. A natural measure is the partial derivative of the output with respect to the parameters. In this seminar we discuss methods for determining these partial derivatives without directly computing the partial derivatives. The same methods may be applied for choosing control parameters in system optimization.
