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.
