"Dimension reduction in uncertainty quantification of nuclear engineering models"

DATE: August 18, 2010

TIME: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00
SPEAKER: Oleg Roderick, Zhu Wang, Brian Lockwood
LOCATION: Bldg 240 Rm 4301, Argonne National Laboratory

In our larger research effort, we approximate the effect of uncertainty in the inputs of a complex simulation model by a hybrid polynomial regression method that uses first-order derivatives of the model as additional fitting conditions. We shall now discuss dimensionality reduction required for the models with large dimension of the uncertainty space. Two other aspects: automatic differentiation, and selection of best polynomial basis for approximation will also be mentioned.
