Abstract:
The computational costs of uncertainty quantification can be challenging, in particular when the problems are large or real time solutions are needed. Numerical methods appropriately modified can turn into powerful and efficient tools for uncertainty quantification. Conversely, state-of-the-art numerical algorithms reinterpreted from the perspective of uncertainty quantification can becomes much more powerful. This presentation will highlight the natural connections between numerical analysis and uncertainty quantification and illustrate the advantages of re-framing classical numerical analysis in a probabilistic setting.
