Statement of Task
- A committee of the NRC will examine practices for verification and validation (V&V) and uncertainty quantification (UQ) of large-scale computational simulations in several research communities.
- Identify common concepts, terms, approaches, tools, and best practices of V&V and UQ.
- Identify mathematical sciences research needed to establish a foundation for building a science of V&V and for improving practice of V&V and UQ.
- Recommend educational changes needed in the mathematical sciences community and mathematical sciences education needed by other scientific communities to most effectively use V&V and UQ.
