Project Description

Uncertainty quantification has become a major concern for a wide range of communities. Simulation codes must account for uncertainty in some of the intrinsic parameters of the problem and provide confidence intervals and statistics of the outputs. We have developed a technique to characterize the relationship between a small number of quantities derived from the physical systems modeled by large-scale (differential) equations and parameters in the model.
