The SIAM Activity Group on Uncertainty Quantification (SIAG/UQ) fosters activity and collaboration on all aspects of the effects of uncertainty and error on mathematical descriptions of real phenomena. It seeks to promote the development of theory and methods to describe quantitatively the origin, propagation, and interplay of different sources of error and uncertainty in analysis and predictions of the behavior of complex systems, including biological, chemical, engineering, financial, geophysical, physical and social/political systems. The SIAG/UQ serves to support interactions among mathematicians, statisticians, engineers, and scientists working in the interface of computation, analysis, statistics, and probability.
The activity group sponsors the biennial SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification and maintains a member directory and an electronic mailing list.
