Abstract

This is a two-day training course that presents some basic ideas on how implementing Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) and Data Assimilation (DA) methods with the dynamical coupling software OpenPALM (http://www.cerfacs.fr/globc/PALM_WEB/),
possibly combined with the Python libraryOpenTURNS (http://www.openturns.org/).
Python has the advantage of being a pre-compiled, portable, dynamical, object-oriented free language.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists
and numerical analysts who aim at developing or using modular uncertainty quantification and data assimilation applications based on numerical models.

Prerequisites

• Notions of data assimilation methods
• Notions of uncertainty quantification methods
• Notions of basic programming in Python, Fortran or other classical languages
• Training on OpenPALM (http://cerfacs.fr/en/event/code-coupling-using-openpalm-5/)
