Current Programs

Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Climate and Earth Systems

Program Dates: August 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018

This SAMSI program will study the interrelations among climate data, climate models and impacts with a view towards projecting future climate change and its impact on earth systems and the human population.

Quasi-Monte Carlo and High-Dimensional Sampling Methods for Applied Mathematics

Program Dates: August 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018

The goal of this SAMSI program is to explore the potential of QMC and other deterministic, randomized and hybrid sampling methods for a wide range of applications, including the numerical solution of PDEs; machine learning; computer graphics; Markov chain sampling, like MCMC and MCQMC; sequential Monte Carlo; and uncertainty quantification.

Upcoming Programs (2018-2019)

Program on Statistical, Mathematical, and Computational Methods for Precision Medicine (PMED)

Program Dates: August 1, 2018 – May 31, 2019

Essential to precision medicine are quantitative methods for translating heterogeneous data sources into actionable information to guide treatment decisions. Mathematical, statistical, and computational scientists have favored different approaches to this challenge.  This SAMSI program will facilitate this critical interdisciplinary exchange by bringing together leading mathematical, statistical, computational, and health sciences researchers to pursue innovative, data-driven methodology for precision medicine.

Model Uncertainty: Mathematical and Statistical (MUMS)

Program Dates: August 1, 2018 – May 31, 2019

The primary goal of this SAMSI program brings together researchers from the UQ and MU communities to attack a variety of common goals. In addition, the MUMS program will also engage a myriad of disciplines and a diverse set of applications.
