On the density estimation problem for uncertainty propagation with unknown input distributions

by   Sebastian Kersting, et al.

In this article we study the problem of quantifying the uncertainty in an experiment with a technical system. We propose new density estimates which combine observed data of the technical system and simulated data from an (imperfect) simulation model based on estimated input distributions. We analyze the rate of convergence of these estimates. The finite sample size performance of the estimates is illustrated by applying them to simulated data. The practical usefulness of the newly proposed estimates is demonstrated by using them to predict the uncertainty of a lateral vibration attenuation system with piezo-elastic supports.
