Colloquium Title: 
Recent advances on multi-fidelity algorithms for uncertainty quantification of large-scale applications
Reception at 3:00 p.m. in 241 SH / Talk at 3:30 in 61 SH



We present an overview of the recent developments of multi-fidelity algorithms for uncertainty quantification problems. The method combines the computational efficiency of low-fidelity models with high accuracy of high-fidelity models. We shall illustrate the advantages of the method via a set of more comprehensive benchmark examples. Both the mathematical justification and numerical implementation are discussed. The method is able to produce accurate estimates of the solution moments using a very small number of expensive high-fidelity simulations. Various numerical tests in different applications fields are provided to demonstrate the performance of the method.
