Themistoklis Botsas: Bayesian Deconvolution in Well Test Analysis

1:00pm, CM105

This work focuses on the development of a Bayesian approach to deconvolution in the context of well test analysis, a set of methodologies used in petroleum engineering that provides information about the properties and the structure of the reservoir and the wellbore using pressure and flow rate data. In particular, we are working on the construction of a suitable and meaningful Bayesian framework for the deconvolution in association with Makrov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods.

I plan to explicitly show how to install Linux from a Live CD.

I also want to show how to edit configuration files in Linux, and plan to use ClamAV as the example. I also will talk about different layouts with linux (aka Gnome vs. KDE, etc.).
