ZOOM ID: 860 6092 4997 PWD: USUAMS

Title: Sensitivity analysis and uncertainty quantification using novel physics-constrained machine learning

Speaker: Dr. Hamidreza Karbasian, Fields Institute, University of Toronto

Abstract:
A new physics-constrained data-driven approach is proposed for sensitivity analysis and uncertainty quantification of large-scale chaotic dynamical systems. Unlike conventional sensitivity analysis, this approach can solve the unsteady sensitivity function for PDE-constrained optimizations. In this new approach, high-dimensional governing equations, such as Navier-Stokes equations, from physical space are transformed into an unphysical space to develop a closure model in the form of a Reduced-Order Model (ROM). Subsequently, a new data sampling approach is proposed to build a data-driven approach for this framework. It is shown that the proposed approach can capture sensitivities for large-scale chaotic dynamical systems, where Finite Difference (FD) approximations fail ...

Mindfulness Meditation | Sitting in breath and presence

Recreation

FREE REGISTRATION: https://bit.ly/mindfulnessandmeditationweekly

Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress. Mindfulness meditation has been proven to support various health conditions - stress, anxiety, pain, depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, and more - and help you experience thoughts and emotions with greater balance and acceptance, improve attentiveness, and relieve burnout.

Practicing self care through mindfulness and meditation can help you relax and focus on what is most important - your overall wellness. This is a weekly, online wellness series hosted by the Utah State University Office of Health Equity and Community Engagement and Tribal & Rural Opioid Initiative Resource Center.
