Abstract: This minisymposium consists of three sessions. Each co-organizer will organize one session. They will address the three aspects of the title: design, modeling, and computations. The focus will be on these problems from the statistical perspective but will also bring in interface with work in applied mathematics on UQ. In design, both space-filling designs and sparse grids are considered. In modeling, both stochastic kriging and generalized polynomial chaos approximation are considered. Comparisons and contrasts between work in applied math and statistics will be emphasized. Computational challenges for high dimensions and big data are the third theme.
