Title:  Silly ideas In data assimilation that still work

Abstract:   A major difficulty in accurately simulating turbulent flows is the problem of determining the initial state of the flow. For example, weather prediction models typically require the present state of the weather as input. However, the state of the weather is only measured at certain points, such as at the locations of weather stations or weather satellites. Data assimilation eliminates the need for complete knowledge of the initial state. It incorporates incoming data into the equations, driving the simulation to the correct solution. The objective of this talk is to discuss innovative computational and mathematical methods to test, improve, and extend a promising new class of algorithms for data assimilation in turbulent flows and related systems. We will look at classical and modern approaches, and then examine, via live simulations, a few new ideas which are a little different, but which in many cases give better results with fewer resources.
