Abstract

Mathematical models are developed to approximate engineering, physical, environmental, social and economic phenomena of various complexities. To ensure a correct use of a model, an appreciation of the relationship between (model) input factors and (model) output is of fundamental importance. The process aimed at understanding how a model behaves in response to changes in its inputs is known as sensitivity analysis. The second international symposium sensitivity analysis of model output (SAMO98) was organized by the Sensitivity Analysis group at the Institute for Systems Informatics and Safety, JRC and by the University of Venice. This publication contains an extended abstract of each presentation and poster.
