Abstract : We report on several research projects funded by grant AFOSR-91-0021. Substantial progress has been made in statistical areas, especially in Bayesian analysis and empirical distributions, and in analysis of inverse problems in structures and groundwater modeling. Our numerical studies have focused oil parallel statistical computing in inverse problems, identification in conservation laws, cooling of viscoelastic films, and a general problem involving the estimation of measures. We have computing facilities and the structures lab of Phillips Lab, in order to tailor the statistical and numerical techniques under study to those problems of interest to AFOSR. We have also visited AFESC at Tyndall AFB to discuss mathematical issues in groundwater modeling problems of interest to the Air Force.
