How should I cite UQLab once I used it in my research?

The continued growth of UQLab depends on the scientific community at large being aware of the use of UQLab. If you use UQLab in your research work, the UQLab Development Team would appreciate that the following reference article is cited in your scientific paper or presentation:

S. Marelli and B. Sudret, “UQLab: A Framework for Uncertainty Quantification in MATLAB,” In The 2nd International Conference on Vulnerability and Risk Analysis and Management (ICVRAM 2014), University of Liverpool, United Kingdom, July 13–16, 2014, pp. 2554–2563. DOI:10.1061/9780784413609.257

You can get the same information directly from the MATLAB command window using the uq_citation command:

>> uq_citation
To cite UQLab in publications please use:

   S. Marelli, and B. Sudret, UQLab: A framework for uncertainty quantification in Matlab,
   Proc. 2nd Int. Conf. on Vulnerability, Risk Analysis and Management (ICVRAM2014),
   Liverpool (United Kingdom), 2014, 2554-2563.

For LaTeX users, the BibTeX entry for this article is:

@inproceedings{MarelliICVRAM2014,
   author    = {Marelli, S. and Sudret, B.},
   title     = {{UQLab}: a framework for uncertainty quantification in {MATLAB}},
   booktitle = {Proc. 2nd Int. Conf. on Vulnerability, Risk Analysis and Management {(ICVRAM2014)}, Liverpool, United Kingdom},
   year      = {2014}
}

UQLab modules

UQLab consists of different scientific modules. To give a proper citation, please also cite the user manuals of the relevant modules you have used.

For instance, the bibliographic information for the Polynomial Chaos Expansions user manual is:

S. Marelli and B. Sudret, “UQLab User Manual — Polynomial Chaos Expansions,” Report UQLab-V1.2-104, Chair of Risk, Safety & Uncertainty Quantification, ETH Zurich, 2019.

You can get the same information directly from the MATLAB command window using the uq_citation command with the name of the module. For example:

>> uq_citation('PCE')

To cite the Polynomial Chaos Expansions manual in publications please use:

   S. Marelli and B. Sudret, UQLab user manual - Polynomial Chaos Expansions,
   Report UQLab-V1.2-104, Chair of Risk, Safety & Uncertainty Quantification,
   ETH Zurich, 2019.

BibTeX entries for UQLab user manuals. The BibTeX entry for each UQLab user manual is available on the second page of every manual.
