In this work we consider quasi-optimal versions of the Stochastic Galerkin method for solving linear elliptic PDEs with stochastic coefficients. In particular, we consider the case of a finite number N of random inputs and an analytic dependence of the solution of the PDE with respect to the parameters in a polydisc of the complex plane C N. We show that a(More)
In this paper we consider a proper generalized decomposition method to solve the steady incompressible Navier–Stokes equations with random Reynolds number and forcing term. The aim of such a technique is to compute a low-cost reduced basis approximation of the full stochastic Galerkin solution of the problem at hand. A particular algorithm, inspired by the(More)
In this work we build on the classical adaptive sparse grid algorithm (T. Gerstner and M. Griebel, Dimension-adaptive tensor-product quadrature), obtaining an enhanced version capable of using non-nested collocation points, and supporting quadrature and interpolation on unbounded sets. We also consider several profit indicators that are suitable to drive(More)
In this work we introduce the Multi-Index Stochastic Collocation method (MISC) for computing statistics of the solution of a PDE with random data. MISC is a combination technique based on mixed differences of spatial approximations and quadratures over the space of random data. We propose an optimization procedure to select the most effective mixed(More)
Object of this study was the occupational stress of 336 teachers (276 women and 60 men) with stable or temporary employment in schools of Pescara, town of Central Italy. The levels of anxiety were determined by STAI and STAI II, those of job strain", "job insecurity" and social support by the Karasek's questionnaire, and the perception of subjective(More)

We analyze the recent Multi-index Stochastic Collocation (MISC) method for computing statistics of the solution of a partial differential equation with random data, where the random coefficient is parametrized by means of a countable sequence of terms in a suitable expansion. MISC is a combination technique based on mixed differences of spatial(More)
In this paper we investigate numerically the order of convergence of an isogeometric collocation method that builds upon the least-squares collocation method presented in [1] and the variational collocation method presented in [14]. The focus here is on smoothest B-splines/NURBS approximations, i.e, having global C continuity for polynomial degree p. In(More)
77 men working in a university were investigated. Trait and state anxiety were determined by STAI I and STAI II; job strain (job demand/decision latitude), social support and job insecurity were analysed by a 46 item Karasek's questionnaire and subjective symptoms by a 12 item test. The employees of a library (mean age 49 years), in contact with students,(More)
