Leader of the group Scientific Computing: Daan Crommelin.

The SC groups develops efficient mathematical methods to simulate and predict real-world phenomena with inherent uncertainties. Such uncertainties arise from e.g. uncertain model parameters, chaotic dynamics or intrinsic randomness, and can have major impact on model outputs and predictions. Our work is targeted in particular at applications in climate, energy, finance and biology. In these vital areas, the ability to assess uncertainties and their impact on model predictions is of paramount importance. Expertise in the SC group includes uncertainty quantification, data assimilation, stochastic multiscale modeling and risk assessment. The availability of data to inform and improve simulations and predictions, for example through learning and data-driven modeling, plays an important role in our research.

Nikki Sonenberg (Antwerp University) - Networks of interacting stochastic fluid models

Stochastic fluid models have been widely used to model the level of a resource that changes over time, where the rate of variation depends on the state of some continuous time Markov process. Latouche and Taylor introduced an approach, using matrix analytic methods and the reduced load approach for loss networks, to analyse networks of fluid models all driven by the same modulating process where the buffers are infinite. We extend the method to networks involving finite buffer models and illustrate the approach by deriving performance measures for a simple network as characteristics such as buffer size are varied. Our results provide insight into the situations where the infinite buffer model is a reasonable approximation to the finite buffer model.
