Felix Klein Conference »Uncertainty Quantification«

Logo Felix-Klein-Zentrum für Mathematik

From September 26 to 28, 2018, the theme conference »Uncertainty Quantification« will take place in the lecture hall of the Fraunhofer ITWM from 9:00 am (1st day: 8:45 am) to 11:45 am. Three internationally renowned experts provide an overview of methods for quantifying uncertainty and their applications. The event is organized as part of the Felix-Klein-Akademie.

Content: Complex processes in nature and technology often do not work as expected. Can their behavior still be predicted? Mathematicians are currently working on finding quantitative descriptions for situations with many unknown parameters.

Multilevel Monte Carlo methods (MLMC), Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods (MCMC) as well as Tensor Decomposition and deep learning methods for multivariate function approximation belong thereby to the methodical equipment for uncertainty quantification.

Lecturers: These Experts are giving the lectures:

  • Prof. Yalchin Efendiev, PhD: Texas A&M University (TAMU), College Station, USA
  • Prof. Robert Scheichl, PhD: University of Bath, Great Britain
  • Prof. Ivan Oseledets, PhD: Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Moscow, Russia

The Felix Klein Center cordially invites all interested scientists to the lectures. Registration is not necessary, the event is free of charge. The conference language is English.
