UNQW04 - UQ for inverse problems in complex systems We discuss recent results in mathematical statistics that provide objective statistical guarantees for Bayesian algorithms in (possibly non-linear) noisy inverse problems. We focus in particular on the justification of Bayesian credible sets as proper frequentist confidence sets in the small noise limit via so-called `Bernstein – von Mises theorems', which provide Gaussian approximations to the posterior distribution, and introduce notions of such theorems in the infinite-dimensional settings relevant for inverse problems. We discuss in detail such a Bernstein-von Mises result for Bayesian inference on the unknown potential in the Schroedinger equation from an observation of the solution of that PDE corrupted by additive Gaussian white noise.
