Title: Implementation of Gamma Distributed Delays Through a Fast ODE Approach
Speaker: Dr. Shuhua Hu
Time: 10:00 am EST


Dr. Hu will discuss how gamma distributed delay involves convolution of the signal to be delayed and the probability density function of the delay time that is assumed to gamma distributed. It is a natural extension of the widely used transit compartment model, and allows users to estimate the shape parameter instead of manually finding a proper one as required by the transit compartment model. The gamma distributed delay was implemented alternatively in Phoenix NLME 8.3 through a faster ODE approximation method proposed in (Krzyzanski, 2019). This makes it possible for some complex population analysis using gamma distributed delay. In this webinar, we will give an introduction to the gamma distributed delay and explain how to implement it in Phoenix NLME through some examples.
