Abstract: Recently, there has been a flurry ofresearch activityon uncertainty quantification and computer experiments due to the drastic increase and cheap availability of computing power, advances in mathematical modeling of physical systems, and availability of simulation software for solving these models. In this talk, I will introduce some of my current research in this area. Specifically, I will talk about solving robust parameter design and tolerance design problems with computer simulations, and building accurate emulatorsusing physical knowledge of the behavior of time consuming computer models.
