This module allows to perform sensitivity analysis.
This is the analysis of the uncertainty in the
output of a given model, depending on the uncertainty in its
inputs.
The analysis is based on chaos polynomials, which are orthogonal polynomials
which are used as an approximation of the original model. Once the coefficients
of the chaos polynomial are computed, the associated sensitivity indices are
straightforward to get.
This toolbox has been created in the context of the
OPUS project :

http://opus-project.fr/
within the workpackage 2.1.1 "Construction de méta-modèles".
This project has received funding by Agence Nationale de la recherche :

See in the help provided in the help/en_US directory of the
toolbox for more information about its use.
Use cases are presented in the demos directory.
