We consider uncertainty quantification using surrogate Gaussian processes. We take a previous sampling algorithm and provide a closed form expression of the resulting posterior distribution. We extend the method to weighted least squares and a Bayesian approach both with closed form expressions of the resulting posterior distributions. We test methods on 1D deconvolution and 2D tomography. Our new methods improve on the previous algorithm, however fall short in some aspects to a typical Bayesian inference method.
General Audience Abstract
Parameter uncertainty quantification seeks to determine both estimates and uncertainty regarding estimates of model parameters. Example of model parameters can include physical properties such as density, growth rates, or even deblurred images. Previous work has shown that replacing data with a surrogate model can provide promising estimates with low uncertainty. We extend the previous methods in the specific field of linear models. Theoretical results are tested on simulated computed tomography problems.
