Uncertainty quantification: theory and application to algorithms, CFD and geosciences

nasri |  

Announced
Deadline for registration: 15 days before the starting date of each training
Duration : 3 days / (21 hours)

Abstract

This training course is given by three specialists of uncertainty quantification: Dr Pietro Marco Congedo – researcher at INRIA Bordeaux Sud-Ouest, Dr Vivien Mallet – researcher at INRIA Paris Rocquencourt, and Dr Pierre Sagaut – professor at Laboratory M2P2, Aix-Marseille University. The first half of the course focuses on theoretical aspects: uncertainties definition, Monte Carlo methods, projection methods, approximation methods and calibration data methods. The second half of the course is dedicated to application of uncertainty quantification to the fields of algorithm, CFD and geosciences.

Target participants

This training session is for engineers, physicists, computer scientists
and numerical analysts who wish to learn about uncertainty quantification.

CECI Contribution to CNRS’ “Petit Illustré” on Complex Systems (CNRS Edition)

ROGEL |  12 October 2017

CECI (Cerfacs, CNRS) and IMFT are both working on numerical modelling of the processes causing river flooding and their uncertainties. A common contribution on this subject, signed by Sophie Ricci and Hélène Roux, appears in Vol. 34 of the "Petit Illustré" collection, edited by CNRS.Read more

"Can we get an engine, an airplane or the entire Earth into a computer?". Such was the catchy title of the CERFACS stand  Friday September 29th, for the "European Research Night" whose theme was "Impossible". A hundred people at the "Quai des Savoirs" in Toulouse took a close interest in the...Read more
