Speaker: David Kelly
Title: Data assimilation in high dimensions
Date and time: February 12, 1:00 p.m. (light refreshments at 12:45 p.m.)
Venue: WWH 1302


This will be an introduction to data assimilation and in particular to methods that are useful for high dimensional forecasting problems. Data assimilation describes any method of using observational data in order to guide model predictions in the right direction. The most prominent application is numerical weather prediction, where forecasts are obtained by blending ocean-atmosphere models with partial observed data in order to reduce prediction uncertainty. We will discuss the basic mathematical ideas (Bayes’ theorem, Kalman filters), the problem of high dimensionality and how methods can be successful in high dimensions.

About this seminar

This seminar is meant to benefit young mathematicians, particularly graduate students and postdocs.
It aims to accomplish the following: The research talks should be fairly introductory and accessible to students and non-specialists in the audience.
