Selected topics on multifield problems in image analysis and visualization

Lecturer

Dr. Steffen Frey and Dr. Andreas Langer

Topics

Obtained measurements are typically not just represted by an individual field but rather by multiple fields. This data may be

. time-dependent (information captured at different points in time),

. multi-variate (featuring different attributes like temperature or pressure),

. multi-modal (stemming from different sources like simulations or measurements),

. ensemble data (repeatedly generated with varied settings),

. and coupled (obtained via coupled models).

In order to present the scientific data, visualization is fundamental. If the observed data are images, then image analysis is used to extract certain properties.

In this seminar, we will discuss methods for visualization and image analysis of multifield data. Topics include visual mapping, interactive visual analysis, optical ow, variational techniques, machine learning, ...

"Stochastic and Statistical Topics in Modeling and Simulation" - Part 3: Theories for Knowledge and Uncertainty

Lecturer

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Nowak

Topic

Uncertainty is prevalent in predictions, models, simulations, incomplete
data, decisions, expectations and so forth. Hence, one needs concepts to define and measure
uncertainty, to define and measure knowledge, and one needs rules for how to act rationally
under uncertainty. In this area, many theories exist, e.g.:

  • Probability theory 
  • Information gap theory,
  • Information theory,
  • Game theory,
  • Decision theory,
  • Bayes theorem,
  • Utility Theory,
  • Solomonoff's inductive inference,
  • Kolmogorov’s theorems & complexity,
  • Aristotelian logic, and so forth…

The presented talks may include theories or their applications. Participants are invited from
science, engineering, mathematics, statistics and social sciences up to philosophy. The overall
goal is to gain an overview over these theories and get familiar with them.
