About the book

Uncertainty analysis aims to quantify the variability of the output quantities of interest (QoI) with respect to the variabilities of input QoI. There exist several sources of uncertainty which make the model (mathematical or numerical) unreliable and less predictive. The major sources of uncertainty are model parameters, in- and output boundary conditions, spatio-temporal variability of parameters, structure and numerical uncertainty. In order to achieve reliable mathematical models, the output uncertainty due to different sources of uncertainty must be reduced.

The output uncertainty in mathematical models can be reduced by using uncertainty and sensitivity analysis.
This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis, their implementations and possible applications in different fields of science and technology.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
