Prof. Tempone elected Program Director of the SIAM Uncertainty Quantification Activity Group (Jan 2013-Dec 2014)

01 February, 2013

The SIAM Activity Group on Uncertainty Quantification (SIAG/UQ) fosters activity and collaboration on all aspects of the effects of uncertainty and error on mathematical descriptions of real phenomena. It seeks to promote the development of theory and methods to describe quantitatively the origin, propagation, and interplay of different sources of error and uncertainty in analysis and predictions of the behavior of complex systems, including biological, chemical, engineering, financial, geophysical, physical and social/political systems. The SIAG/UQ serves to support interactions among mathematicians, statisticians, engineers, and scientists working in the interface of computation, analysis, statistics, and probability.
