Mathematical Science Foundations of Validation, Verification, and Uncertainty Quantification

There is an interesting study being conducted by the National Academies.  Here's their "Statement of Task":
  • A committee of the NRC will examine practices for verification and validation (V&V) and uncertainty quantification (UQ) of large-scale computational simulations in several research communities.
  • Identify common concepts, terms, approaches, tools, and best practices of V&V and UQ.
  • Identify mathematical sciences research needed to establish a foundation for building a science of V&V and for improving practice of V&V and UQ.
  • Recommend educational changes needed in the mathematical sciences community and mathematical sciences education needed by other scientific communities to most effectively use V&V and UQ.

Here's a list of the folks on the committee.  It should be interesting to see the study results (it's an 18 month long effort).
