We discuss parametrizations of random coefficiens for PDEs based on Karhunen-Loeve, Haar and other seriesĀ  expansions. Theoretically, these coefficients are properly described only if an infinite number of terms (random variables) is used. Practically only a few terms are needed to describe the random coefficients with sufficient accuracy. Thus, it is reasonable to limit the analysis to just a few random variables in the expansion.


We consider stochastic collocation method consisting of a Galerkin approximation in space and a collocation in the zeros of appropriate orthogonal polynomials in the probability space.
