If you have a question about this talk, please contact Alexandra Tzella. We address the prohibitively large cost of Markov chain Monte Carlo for large-scale PDE applications with high dimensional parameter spaces. We propose a new multilevel Metropolis-Hastings algorithm, and give an abstract theorem on its cost. For a typical model problem in subsurface flow, we then provide a detailed analysis of the assumptions in the theorem and show gains of at least one order in the ε-cost over standard Metropolis-Hastings both theoretically and numerically.
