Many UQ models consist of random differential equa
tions in which one or more data components are unc
ertain and modeled as random variables. When the l
atter take values in a separable function space\,
their representation typically requires a large or
countably infinite number of random coordinates.
Numerical approximation methods for such functions
of an infinite number of parameters based on best
N-term approximation have recently been proposed
and shown to converge at an algebraic rate. Colloc
ation methods have a number of computational advan
tages over best N-term approximation\, and we show
how ideas successful there can be used to show a
similar convergence rate for sparse collocation of
Hilbert-space-valued functions depending on count
ably many Gaussian random variables. Such functio
ns appear as solutions of elliptic PDEs with a log
normal diffusion coefficient. We outline a general
L2-convergence theory based on previous work by B
achmayr et al. and Chen and establish an algebraic
convergence rate for sufficiently smooth function
s assuming a mild growth bound for the univariate
hierarchical surpluses of the interpolation scheme
applied to Hermite polynomials. We verify specifi
cally for Gauss-Hermite nodes that this assumption
holds and also show algebraic convergence with re
spect to the resulting number of sparse grid point
s for this case. Numerical experiments illustrate
the dimension-independent convergence rate.
