Accurate Computation of Conditional Expectation for Highly Nonlinear Problems
Inverse problems to identify parameters by incorporating information from measurements are formulated here in a probabilistic setting based on data from measurements to solve generally ill-posed problems.
Parameter Estimation Based on Least Squares Methods
It is shown that for many problems for which there are correlated effects it is possible to develop algorithms that use structure associated with the variance matrices to solve the problems efficiently.
Popper, Bayes and the inverse problem
Using observations to infer the values of some parameters corresponds to solving an 'inverse problem'. Practitioners usually seek the 'best solution' implied by the data, but observations should only
Information-Theoretic Approach for Identifiability Assessment of Nonlinear Structural Finite-Element Models
An information-theoretic approach for identifiability assessment of model parameters in nonlinear finite-element model updating problems and Rooted in the Bayesian inf...
Hessian-based covariance approximations in variational data assimilation
Abstract The problem of variational data assimilation (estimation) for a nonlinear model is considered in general operator formulation. Hessian-based methods are presented to compute the estimation

Optimal Experimental Design for Bayesian Inverse Problems Governed by PDEs: A Review
This work presents a review of methods for optimal experimental design (OED) for Bayesian inverse problems governed by partial differential equations and surveys the computational methods for the class of OED problems under study.
Bayesian Parameter Estimation via Filtering and Functional Approximations
The inverse problem of determining parameters in a model by comparing some output of the model with observations is addressed. This is a description for what hat to be done to use the
Bayesian Inverse Problems
This chapter provides a general introduction, at the high level, to the backward propagation of uncertainty/information in the solution of inverse problems, and specifically a Bayesian probabilistic
