##### Abstract

Information-based complexity (IBC) deals with the computational complexity of continuous problems for which available information is partial, priced and noisy. IBC provides a methodological background for proving the curse of dimensionality as well as provides various ways of vanquishing this curse.

Stochastic computation deals with computational problems that arise in probabilistic models or can be efficiently solved by randomized algorithms. Using IBC background, the complexity of stochastic ordinary (SDE) and partial differential (SPDE) equations have been studied.

Topics covered in the workshop will include: adaptive and nonlinear approximation for SPDEs, infinite-dimensional problems, inverse and ill- posed problems, quasi-Monte Carlo methods, PDEs with random coefficients, sparse/Smolyak grids, stochastic multi-level algorithms, SDEs and SPDEs with nonstandard coefficients, tractability of multivariate problems.

This workshop will bring together researchers from these different fields. The goal is to explore connections, learn and share techniques, and build bridges.
