Year-long Research Programs

SAMSI’s research programs are large-scale efforts focusing on interfaces among statistics, applied mathematics and other disciplinary sciences. The programs typically run a full academic year. They involve long and short term research fellows from U.S. and international institutions, and SAMSI postdoctoral fellows. Graduate students from our partner universities and from other universities, both national and international, are active participants. The programs also engage researchers working in industry, governmental agencies and national laboratories.

Current Research Programs

Program on Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Climate and the Earth System (CLIM)

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.

August 1, 2017 – May 31, 2018

Program on Quasi-Monte Carlo and High-Dimensional Sampling Methods for Applied Mathematics (QMC)

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.
