Title: Predictability and Uncertainty in Large-Scale Simulations

Abstract: Large-scale simulations have enabled predictive modeling of
complex multiscale physical and biomedical phenomena, e.g. turbulent flows
resolved at the Kolmogorov scale or brain aneurysms resolved at the
sub-cell level.
However, such simulation results are strongly dependent on the values
of material properties and boundary
conditions, which are often unknown or uncertain. In this talk, I will
review the state-of-the-art in the stochastic
modeling of physical and biological systems, paying particular
attention to high dimensionality
of such problems and proposing different new approaches to handling it
