 Thèmes de recherche

By studying the measurements made with a mobile sensor in a random medium, we have defined and give the properties of the acquisition process of a vector field along a random path. For the stochastic filtering of the conditioned acquisition process, we have proposed new algorithms of non-linear filtering for mean-field processes and for some various types of laws. We prove the convergence of the particle approximation for each new algorithms of estimates we gave. The resulted filtering algorithms are based on the dynamics of genealogical trees where the processes interact by genetic selections and by their mean-field law.

This innovative work allowed us to filter velocity measurements of a turbulent fluid. We present several applications of our methods by using some 1D, 2D or 3D measurements, simulated or real. Our techniques make it possible to obtain high frequency estimates of the fluid velocities as well as quantities characterizing turbulence, and we proceed to a systematic study on numerical errors produced by our methods of calculation. Some applications for doppler LIDAR measurements have been achieved.

The second part of our research is linked to data assimilation. We study different non-linear techniques used in stochastic engineering to suggest new algorithms appropriate to high dimensional problems occuring in atmospheric data assimilation. In the end, we study the mathematical properties of this new estimators. This work shape a convergence between resampling particle filters and corrective variational assimilation.

This new field of research give also a coherent frame to assimilate properly new instruments using their own capabilites to explore the turbulence.

The last part of my research concerns the design of stochastic algorithm in order to include Met information in the Aircraft Navigation predictors. The trajectory based SESAR concept of operations calls for new concepts in the provision of MET information to Air Traffic Management. This task aims at quantifying the optimal time and spatial resolution of wind and temperature data for trajectory calculation and the probabilistic representation of wind, temperature and weather hazards in trajectory calculation schemes.
