UNQW04 - UQ for inverse problems in complex systems Following the first direct observation of gravitational waves from a pair of merging black holes in September 2015, we are now entering the era of gravitational-wave astronomy, where gravitational waves are increasingly being used as a tool to explore topics ranging from astronomy (stellar and binary evolution) to fundamental physics (tests of the general theory of relativity). Future progress depends on addressing several key problems in statistical inference on gravitational-wave observations, including (i) rapidly growing computational cost for future instruments; (ii) noise characterisation; (iii) model systematics; and (iv) model selection.
