Description

Conducts a "stochastic contribution analysis" by calculating the change in propagated uncertainty when each of the simulated variables is kept constant at its mean, i.e. the uncertainty is removed.

Usage

1
stochContr(prop, plot = TRUE)

Arguments

prop

a propagate object.

plot

logical. If TRUE, a boxplot with the original and mean-value propagated distribution.

Details

This function takes the Monte Carlo simulated data X_n from a propagate object (...$datSIM), sequentially substitutes each variable β_i by its mean \bar{β_i} and then re-evaluates the output distribution Y_n = f(β, X_n). Optional boxplots are displayed that compare the original Y_n\mathrm{(orig)} to those obtained from removing σ from each β_i. Finally, the relative contribution C_i for all β_i is calculated by C_i = σ(Y_n\mathrm{(orig)})-σ(Y_n), and divided by its sum so that ∑_{i=1}^n C_i = 1.

Value

The relative contribution C_i for all variables.
