Aitchison, Joyce and Cummings, Linda and Richardson, Giles and Rougier, Jonathan (2005) Uncertainty of flow in porous media. [Study Group Report]

The problem posed to the Study Group was, in essence, how to estimate the probability distribution of f(x) from the probability distribution of x. Here x is a large vector and f is a complicated function which can be expensive to evaluate. For Schlumberger's applications f is a computer simulator of a hydrocarbon reservoir, and x is a description of the geology of the reservoir, which is uncertain.
