Power systems have been subjected to several changes due to a constant evolution over the last years. The changes that come along with this evolution include several aspects such as the introduction of variable energy generation from renewable sources, changes in the network's topology, storage, new regulation policies, liberalization of markets...

Ontology alignment systems are evaluated by various performance scores, which are usually computed by a ratio related directly to the frequency of the true positives. However, such ratios provide little information regarding the uncertainty of the overall performance of the corresponding systems. The comparison is also drawn merely by the...

The Winter Colloquium on the Physics of Quantum Electronics (PQE) has been a seminal force in quantum optics and related areas since 1971. It is rather mind-boggling to recognize how the concepts presented at these conferences have transformed scientific understanding and human society. In January 2017, the participants of PQE were asked to...

We present here a Bayesian framework of risk perception. This framework encompasses plausibility judgments, decision making, and question asking. Plausibility judgments are modeled by way of Bayesian probability theory, decision making is modeled by way of a Bayesian decision theory, and relevancy judgments are modeled by way of a Bayesian...

In this paper, we will give the derivation of an inquiry calculus, or, equivalently, a Bayesian information theory. From simple ordering follow lattices, or, equivalently, algebras. Lattices admit a quantification, or, equivalently, algebras may be extended to calculi. The general rules of quantification are the sum and chain rules. Probability...

It is a relatively well-known fact that in problems of Bayesian model selection, improper priors should, in general, be avoided. In this paper we will derive and discuss a collection of four proper uniform priors which lie on an ascending scale of informativeness. It will turn out that these priors lead us to evidences that are closely...

Due to limited information in site investigation, it is not possible to obtain the actual values for the mean, standard deviation, and scale of fluctuation of a soil property of interest. The deviation between the estimated values and actual values is called the statistical uncertainty. There are two schools of thoughts on how to model the...

The statistics course most engineers took in college—seldom more than one—introduced them to a particular species of statistics, which, regrettably, is of limited use in geotechnical practice: frequentist sampling theory. That species of statistical thinking arose to address problems of agricultural experimentation, biology, and economics. It is...

Hurricane Sandy (2012), which made landfall in New Jersey on October 29th, made devastating impact on the East Coast of the USA and struck major parts of New York City, including the economic centre of Manhattan. The total damage (in the USA and Caribbean) is in excess of 100 billion US$ with estimates ranging between 78 and 97 billion US$ for...

This note describes the theory behind a simple Matlab program to generate ensembles of geological realizations of relatively small-scale reservoir models (permeability fields) for subsurface flow simulation. The algorithm makes use of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) to parameterize the spatial covariance of a reference image, and a Bayesian...

This paper presents a generic method for the safety assessments of models with partial monotonicity. For this purpose, a Bayesian interpolation method is developed and implemented in the Monte Carlo process. integrated approach is the generalization of the recently developed techniques used in safety assessment of monotonic models and it...

To estimate rock and pore-fluid properties of oil and gas reservoirs in the subsurface, techniques can be used that invert seismic data. Hereby, the detailed information about the reservoir that is available at well locations, such as the thickness and porosity of individual layers, is extrapolated to all locations in the reservoir on the basis...
