On the 4th of October 2011 (at 11:00 am), the SMC seminar will take place in the C3.122 room: R. Filomeno Coelho will talk about Bayesian statistics for structural optimization under uncertainty.

The presentation (in pdf) is available here.

For no less than two centuries, Bayesian statistics have been considered as a controversial paradigm to deal with uncertain events, in comparison to the well-established frequentist approach. Nevertheless, for a couple of decades, this theory has aroused a growing interest in several scientific fields, including structural reliability. In this talk, the basic Bayesian concepts will be presented, followed by a brief discussion about their possible applications  to structural optimization under uncertainty.
