DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Nicolas Trillos\nhosted by Jan Maas\nAbstract: We cons
ider the problem of recovering a function input of a differential equation
formulated on an unknown domain $M$. We assume to have access to a discre
te domain $M_n=\\{x_1\, \\dots\, x_n\\} \\subset M$\, and to noisy measure
ments of the output solution at $p\\le n$ of those points. We introduce a
graph-based Bayesian inverse problem\, and show that the graph-posterior
measures over functions in $M_n$ converge\, in the large $n$ limit\, to a
posterior over functions in $M$ that solves a Bayesian inverse problem wit
h known domain. The proofs rely on the variational formulation of the Baye
sian update\, and on a new topology for the study of convergence of measur
es over functions on point clouds to a measure over functions on the conti
nuum. Our framework\, techniques\, and results may serve to lay the founda
tions of robust uncertainty quantification of graph-based tasks in machine
learning. The ideas are presented in the concrete setting of recovering t
he initial condition of the heat equation on an unknown manifold. This is
joint work with Daniel Sanz-Alonso
