Kinetic Bayesian Inference

Project description

The Chemical Kinetic Bayesian Inference Toolbox (CKBIT) is a Python library for applying Bayesian inference to kinetic rate parameters developed by the Vlachos Research Group at the University of Delaware.


Documentation can be found at this webiste:


There are examples of the code in the Github examples folder. The examples are provided in both Python scripts and in Jupyter notebooks. Ensure the accompanying Excel files are used as templates for data entry.
