Uncertainty quantification

Helmholtz UQ tackles uncertainty in data, analyses, and predictions from diverse domains that are represented by our use cases. We explore commonalities in estimating and dealing with uncertainty in these areas and learn from potential differences.

The UQ cycle

The UQ cycle

The central theme of this project is the UQ cycle, which combines sources of uncertainty with methods. Having a model is as valuable as our understanding of its uncertainty. Data, on the other hand, comes riddled with noise. The UQ cycle comprises identification, presentation, analysis, and modeling of the sources of uncertainty.

Why UQ in Helmholtz? Why now?

Why UQ in Helmholtz? Why now?

  • Many innovative modeling and computational efforts in Helmholtz need to be combined with a myriad of complex data.
  • Recent advances in mathematical methods have not yet been fully exploited in Helmholtz applications.
  • Helmholtz UQ complements other Helmholtz platforms (HAICU, HDF, HIDA, HIDSS) and pilot projects (HAF, RedMod, Sparse2Big).
  • Helmholtz UQ is a cross-disciplinary collaboration focused on quantifications of uncertainty, which is ubiquitous across research fields and other Helmholtz projects.
