New sensitivity analysis subordinated to a contrast

Abstract : In a model of the form $Y=h(X_1,\ldots,X_d)$ where the goal is to estimate a parameter of the probability distribution of $Y$, we define new sensitivity indices which quantify the importance of each variable $X_i$ with respect to this parameter of interest. The aim of this paper is to define {\it goal oriented sensitivity indices} and we will show that Sobol indices are sensitivity indices associated to a particular characteristic of the distribution $Y$. We name the framework we present as {\it Goal Oriented Sensitivity Analysis} (GOSA).
