Abstract: In this talk we shall survey recent research on inverse problems, developed by our group at IMPA's Laboratory for Analysis and Mathematical Modelling.
On the methodological side, we have developed non-intrusive resampling tools [1] as well as optimization techniques [2,3,4,5]. Such tools have proven very effective to tackle a number of relevant problems in Mathematical Physics, Finance, and Biology and are naturally extensible to other fields. We shall then illustrate the method with an application to biophysical systems, with a case study of the uncertain quantification of the success probability of invading populations of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes (responsible for the Dengue and Zika epidemics) by infection with Wolbachia bacteria [6]. Time allowing we shall discuss other applications of Monte Carlo techniques for the solution of Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations.
