Figure 6

Distribution of sensitivity interval versus parameter value. (A) Plot of sensitivity interval. Here both the upper and lower sensitivity interval scale with absolute parameter values. Hence the parameter becomes more sensitive when it is smaller in magnitude. (B) sensitivity shows non-scaling behaviour, which is also observed for most other parameters. Furthermore, circuits with very similar parameter values can have very different sensitivities; this was also observed for most parameters. (C) Diffusion sensitivity illustrated by D gt . For most circuits the lower value for the diffusion coefficient reaches zero, hence the lower sensitivity interval is equal to the parameter value, meaning that without diffusion the pattern still forms correctly.
