LANL Uncertainty Quantification Working Group

Click for information about our meetings or instructions for joining or leaving the UQWG e-mailing list.

We aim to foster communication between scientists who are interested in quantifying uncertainties in their scientific and engineering applications. We host seminars to inform people about advanced analysis techniques.
Case Studies
We are putting together a list of case studies. It is anticipated that these case studies will be presented to the UQWG for discussion by the participants. Please send us a BRIEF (one-page) description of your project/problem and what you see as the uncertainty quantification issues that you need to address. Mention any progress that has been made on UQ and stumbling blocks that have been encountered. Please keep it short - one page at most. If you wish to describe more than one project/problem, feel free to do so, but use a separate page for each. Email your page to Ken Hanson either as an attached MSWord document or in the text of your email.
