BaPC Matlab Toolbox offers an advanced framework for stochastic model calibration and parameter inference based on the arbitrary polynomial chaos expansion (aPC) and strict Bayesian principles. BaPC framework follows the idea of aPC technique (Oladyshkin and Nowak, 2012) and can use arbitrary distributions for modelling parameters, which can be either discrete, continuous, or discretized continuous and can be specified either analytically, numerically as histogram or as raw data sets. BaPC Matlab Toolbox approximates the dependence of simulation model output on model parameters by expansion in an orthogonal polynomial basis and the resulting response surface can be seen as a reduced (surrogate) model. BaPC Matlab Toolbox employs an iterative Bayesian approach (Oladyshkin and Nowak, 2013) in incorporate the available measurement data and to construct the accurate reduced model in the relevant regions of high posterior probability.
