Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Sparse grids have become a versatile tool for a vast range of applications reaching from interpolation and numerical quadrature to data-driven problems and uncertainty quantification. We review four selected real-world applications of sparse grids: financial product pricing with the Black-Scholes model, interactive exploration of simulation data with sparse-grid-based surrogate models, analysis of simulation data through sparse grid data mining methods, and stability investigations of plasma turbulence simulations.
