Minisymposium on Bayesian well-posedness at SIAM UQ20


My colleague Björn Sprungk (Göttingen) and I had submitted a minisymposium to the SIAM Conference on Uncertainty Quantification, which will take place in the end of March 2020 in Munich, Germany. Our minisymposium has now been approved by the conference’s scientific committee. Its title reads “Would Hadamard have used Bayes’ rule? - On robustness and brittleness of statistical inversion”. We are looking forward to four very interesting talks, which are going to cover: stability and instability of Bayesian inference subject to perturbations in data, model, or prior; consistency subject to large data limits and convergence of Gaussian process surrogates/emulators; and influences of perturbations in MCMC algorithms.
