Computational Techniques for Lyapunov Exponents and Vectors
23 Mar 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Mary Lou Zeeman
In this talk we present computational techniques for Lyapunov exponents and vectors based upon continuous matrix factorizations (QR and SVD). We outline the techniques, their well-posedness, error analysis/perturbation theory, and describe codes we have developed. We then discuss application of...

Extending the square root method to account for model noise in the ensemble Kalman filter
25 Feb 2015 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Mary Lou Zeeman
Presented by Patrick Raanes on 2-18-2015 Abstract:A novel approach to account for model noise in the forecast step of the Ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is proposed. The core method is based on the approach of the analysis step of ensemble square root filters (ETKF), and...
