CCIMI Colloquium – The Statistical Finite Element Method

With Professor Mark Girolami, University of Cambridge

CCIMI Colloquium – The Statistical Finite Element Method

The finite element method (FEM) is one of the great triumphs of applied mathematics, numerical analysis and software development. Recent developments in sensor and signalling technologies enable the phenomenological study of systems. The connection between sensor data and FEM is restricted to solving inverse problems placing unwarranted faith in the fidelity of the mathematical description of the system. If one concedes mis-specification between generative reality and the FEM then a framework to systematically characterise this uncertainty is required. This talk will present a statistical construction of the FEM which systematically blends mathematical description with observations.

This event will be followed by a wine reception. It is free to attend but registration is required here.
