  1. Optimal Filters for High-Speed Compressive Detection in Spectroscopy

    17 Dec 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Gregery T Buzzard

    In this talk I describe the mathematical formulation of this problem and describe results on the selection of optimal filters for estimation of the chemical composition of a sample and estimation of the associated uncertainty..

  2. Quantifying the Influence of Conformational Uncertainty in Biomolecular Solvation Using a L1 Minimization with Basis Rotation Algorithm

    16 Dec 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Guang Lin

    Biomolecules exhibit conformation fluctuations near equilibrium states, inducing uncertainty in various biological properties. We have developed a L1 minimization with basis rotation algorithm to quantify this uncertainty using a generalized polynomial chaos expansion on collective variables...

  3. View of Uncertainty from a Mathematician doing Research at a Chemical Company

    22 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): James Sturnfield

  4. Pertinent and Exciting Uncertainty Quantification Problem Spaces in Materials and Manufacturing

    22 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Amanda Criner

    A summary of a few exciting problem spaces will be given to demonstrate the breadth of pertinent uncertainty quantification problems to materials and manufacturing.

  5. Sensitivity Analysis of Multiscale Reaction Networks with Stochastic Averaging

    25 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Araz Ryan Hashemi

    We shall show how stochastic averaging may be employed to speed computations and obtain estimates of mean values and sensitivities with respect to the steady state distribution. Further, we shall establish bounds which show the bias induced by the averaging method decays to zero as the disparity...
