Delta Moment-Independent Method

struct DeltaMoment{T} <: GSAMethod

DeltaMoment has the following keyword arguments:

  • nboot: number of bootstrap repetions. Defaults to 500.
  • conf_level: the level used for confidence interval calculation with bootstrap. Default value of 0.95.
  • Ygrid_length: number of quadrature points to consider when performing the kernel density estimation and the integration steps. Should be a power of 2 for efficient FFT in kernel density estimates. Defaults to 2048.
  • num_classes: Determine how many classes to split each factor into to when generating distributions of model output conditioned on class.

Method Details

The Delta moment-independent method relies on new estimators for density-based statistics. It allows for the estimation of both distribution-based sensitivity measures and of sensitivity measures that look at contributions to a specific moment. One of the primary advantage of this method is the independence of computation cost from the number of parameters.


DeltaMoment only works for scalar output.


function gsa(f, method::DeltaMoment, p_range; N, batch = false, rng::AbstractRNG = Random.default_rng(), kwargs...)


using GlobalSensitivity, Test

function ishi(X)
    A= 7
    B= 0.1
    sin(X[1]) + A*sin(X[2])^2+ B*X[3]^4 *sin(X[1])

lb = -ones(4)*π
ub = ones(4)*π

m = gsa(ishi,DeltaMoment(),fill([lb[1], ub[1]], 3), N=1000)
