Stochastic Models in Earth Sciences
Kasra Alishahi Sharif University of Technology 

Abstract:
Using stochastic methods in geosciences has become very popular in
recent years. Random function or random field is an essential
concept in many models for geoscience applications. In this
lecture, firstly, we will focus on the important class of
stationary Gaussian random fields and discuss an algorithm for
their simulation, based on the spectral representation theory of
stationary random fields. Then we are going to introduce two other
classes of stationary random fields which we think are important
for geoscience applications: Markov random fields and random
fields with Poissontype spectrums. Some ideas for simulation in
these cases will be discussed, among which are MCMC algorithms
with local evolution rules.
