uncertainty quantification
In this work we develop a Hessian-based sampling method for the construction of goal-oriented reduced order models
with high-dimensional parameter inputs. Model reduction is known to be very challenging for high-dimensional parametric
problems whose solutions also live in high-dimensional manifolds. However, the manifold of some quantity of
interest (QoI) depending on the parametric solutions may be low-dimensional. We use the Hessian of the QoI with respect
to the parameter to detect this low-dimensionality, and draw training samples by projecting the high-dimensional
parameter to a low-dimensional subspace spanned by the eigenvectors of the Hessian corresponding to its dominating
eigenvalues. Instead of forming the full Hessian, which is computationally intractable for a high-dimensional parameter,
we employ a randomized algorithm to efficiently compute the dominating eigenpairs of the Hessian whose cost does
not depend on the nominal dimension of the parameter but only on the intrinsic dimension of the QoI.We demonstrate
that the Hessian-based sampling leads to much smaller errors of the reduced basis approximation for the QoI compared
to a random sampling for a diffusion equation with random input obeying either uniform or Gaussian distributions.

Vlasov-Poission equations
In this paper, we study the nonlinear Landau damping solution of the Vlasov-Poisson equations with random inputs
from the initial data or equilibrium, for the solution studied by Hwang and VelÃ¡zquez smoothly on the random input,
if the long-time limit distribution function has the same smoothness, under some smallness assumptions. We also
establish the decay of the higher-order derivatives of the solution in the random variable, with the same decay rate as
its deterministic counterpart.

forward backward stochastic differential equation
jump diffusion processes
adjoint processes
Fokker-Planck equation
Forward backward stochastic differential equations (FBSDEs) were first introduced as a probabilistic interpretation
for the Kolmogorov backward equation, and the solution of FBSDEs is equivalent to the solution of quasilinear partial
differential equations. In this work, we introduce the adjoint relation between a generalized FBSDE system driven
by jump diffusion processes and its time inverse adjoint FBSDE system under the probabilistic framework without
translating them into their corresponding PDEs. The "exact solution" of a nonlinear filtering problem is derived as an
application.

uncertainty quantification
log-normal random coefficient
In this work, we consider a non-standard preconditioning strategy for the numerical approximation of the classical
elliptic equations with log-normal random coefficients. In earlier work, a Wick-type elliptic model was proposed by
modeling the random flux through the Wick product. Due to the lower-triangular structure of the uncertainty propagator, this model can be approximated efficiently using the Wiener chaos expansion in the probability space. Such
a Wick-type model provides, in general, a second-order approximation of the classical one in terms of the standard
deviation of the underlying Gaussian process. Furthermore, when the correlation length of the underlying Gaussian
process goes to infinity, the Wick-type model yields the same solution as the classical one. These observations imply that the Wick-type elliptic equation can provide an effective preconditioner for the classical random elliptic equation under appropriate conditions. We use the Wick-type elliptic model to accelerate the Monte Carlo method and the stochastic Galerkin finite element method. Numerical results are presented and discussed.

fracture prediction uncertainty
Bayesian theory
time-lapse seismic (4D)
deterministic inversion
reservoir fracturing
The uncertainty of hydraulic fracture is high due to the complex geological features of which there is limited accurate understanding, and the limitations of the fracture diagnosis method. However, hydraulic fractures are one of the main driving forces for oilfields to improve economic benefit and important reference imformation for further development and adjustment of oilfields. Therefore, reducing fracture morphology uncertainty is a key challenge for the further development of oilfields. To improve this situation, we present a novel method based on the time-lapse (4D) seismic and discrete network deterministic inversion (DNDI) algorithm for mapping the geometry of hydraulic fracture. The time-lapse (4D) seismic method can provide spatial and dynamic change of reservoir; this information is used by DNDI to optimize fracture geometry continually, where the embedded discrete fracture model (EDFM) is implied to simulate reservoir production, and objective function is constructed using Bayesian theory for reaching iterative convergence quickly. An uncertainty analysis of results based on the posterior probability is also presented in this paper. Finally, this method has been validated in different scale study cases.
