We report here on the recent application of a now classical general reduction technique, the Reduced-Basis (RB) approach initiated by C. Prud’homme et al. in J. Fluids Eng. 124(1), 70–80, 2002, to the specific context of differential equations with random coefficients. After an elementary presentation of the approach, we review two contributions of the authors: in Comput. Methods Appl. Mech. Eng. 198(41–44), 3187–3206, 2009, which presents the application of the RB approach for the… 

A reduced-basis method for input-output uncertainty propagation in stochastic PDEs

This work proposes a non-intrusive reduced-basis method for the rapid and reliable evaluation of the statistics of linear functionals of stochastic PDEs and develops the reduced basis for not only the primal problem, but also the adjoint problem.

Comparison Between Reduced Basis and Stochastic Collocation Methods for Elliptic Problems

The main result stemming from this comparison is that the reduced basis method converges better in theory and faster in practice than the stochastic collocation method for smooth problems, and is more suitable for large scale and high dimensional stochastics problems when considering computational costs.

A reduced basis approach for some weakly stochastic multiscale problems

In this paper, a multiscale problem arising in material science is considered. The problem involves a random coefficient which is assumed to be a perturbation of a deterministic coefficient, in a

Multiscale Problems in Materials Science: A Mathematical Approach to the Role of Uncertainty

Abstract : The bottom line of this work is to develop affordable numerical methods in the context of stochastic homogenization. Many partial differential equations of materials science indeed involve

Multilevel and weighted reduced basis method for stochastic optimal control problems constrained by Stokes equations

A multilevel weighted reduced basis method for solving stochastic optimal control problems constrained by Stokes equations is developed and it is proved the analytic regularity of the optimal solution in the probability space under certain assumptions on the random input data is proved.



A multiscale reduced-basis method for parametrized elliptic partial differential equations with multiple scales


This work introduces a new offline basis-generation algorithm based on the derivation of rigorous a-posteriori error estimates in various norms for general linear evolution schemes such as finite volume schemes for parabolic and hyperbolic evolution equations.

Numerical Models for Differential Problems

This text considers the classical elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic linear equations, but also the diffusion, transport, and Navier-Stokes equations, as well as equations representing conservation laws, saddle-point problems and optimal control problems.

The purpose of this work is to show how the reduced-basis approach allows one to speed up the computation of a large number of cell problems without any loss of precision.

Variance Reduction for Simulated Diffusions

The approach taken here is to construct variance reduced random variables on the infinite-dimensional spaces, which can subsequently be approximated by any of a number of known finite difference methods.

A Stochastic Collocation Method for Elliptic Partial Differential Equations with Random Input Data

A rigorous convergence analysis is provided and exponential convergence of the “probability error” with respect to the number of Gauss points in each direction in the probability space is demonstrated, under some regularity assumptions on the random input data.
