> Dear Dr. Hickernell,
> Below is a brief article about the undergraduate workshop that SAMSI held in May. Thought I'd send this to you along with a photo in case you have a department newsletter, or website you post things like this to share with others. Hope you have a great summer. 
> Pictured in the photo from left to right are: Barrett Leslie (Illinois Institute of Technology), Alice Toms (NCSU) and William Gamber (Pomona College) . 
> Students Learn About Uncertainty Quantification at the SAMSI Modeling Workshop
> Barrett Leslie of the Illinois Institute of Technology recently completed the Undergraduate Workshop at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI). The week-long program was held at SAMSI in Research Triangle Park, and at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina.
> The workshop was an introduction to the field of uncertainty quantification (UQ) to students from the mathematical and statistical sciences. The overall goal of the workshop was to illustrate the need for and power of quantitative methods to confront the very hardest and most important data- and model-driven scientific challenges.
> The students worked on controlling specific stochastic dynamical systems, specifically, shock absorber systems for cars on bumpy roads. They acquired a working knowledge of techniques such as Kalman filters and Monte Carlo method. The students worked in groups of three under the supervision of SAMSI researchers and postdocs.
> Take care,
