DESCRIPTION:We present path-space\, information theory-based\,
sensitivity analysis\, uncertainty quantification
and variational inference methods for complex hig
h-dimensional stochastic dynamics\, including chem
ical reaction networks with hundreds of parameters
\, Langevin-type equations and lattice kinetic Mon
te Carlo. We establish their connections with goal
-oriented methods in terms of new\, sharp\, uncert
ainty quantification inequalities that scale appro
priately at both long times and for high dimension
al state and parameter space. \; The combin
ation of proposed methodologies is capable to (a)
tackle non-equilibrium processes\, typically assoc
iated with coupled physicochemical mechanisms or b
oundary conditions\, such as reaction-diffusion pr
oblems\, and where even steady states are unknown
altogether\, e.g. do not have a Gibbs structure. T
he path-wise information theory tools\, \; (b)
yield a surprisingly simple\, tractable and easy-
to-implement approach to quantify and rank paramet
er sensitivities\, as well as \; (c) provide r
eliable parameterizations for coarse-grained molec
ular systems based on fine-scale data\, and ration
al model selection through path-space (dynamics-ba
sed) variational inference methods.
