FAST: Fourier Amplitude Sensitivity Test


This method allows the estimation of first order and total Sobol’ indices for input variables (alltogether 2p indices, where p is the number of variables) at a total cost of n × p simulations.In this case, the total cost is 3×999 = 2997 simulations.The resulting analysis is the following:

  • R. I. Cukier, H. B. Levine and K. E. Schuler, 1978, Nonlinear sensitivity analysis of multiparameter model systems. J. Comput. Phys., 26, 1–42.


FAST method is wrapped from [R] sensitivity package written by Gilles Pujol and maintained by Bertrand Iooss.
See Sensitivity package documentation.
Available random models for input variables:


  • copy in “Promethee_Install_Path/plugins/doe” directory,
  • restart Promethee GUI.
