Background parameter estimation for differential equation models of intracellular processes is a highly relevant bu challenging task the available experimental data do not usually contain enough information to identify all parameters uniquely, resulting in ill-posed estimation problems with often highly. Sourav chatterjee and persi diaconis arxived yesterday an exciting paper where they study the proper sample size in an importance sampling setting with no variance that's right, with no variance they give as a starting toy example the use of an exp(1) proposal for an exp(1/2) target, where the importance ratio exp( x/2)/2.
