The overall goal of this chapter is to highlight the mathematical framework useful to carry out an uncertainty quantification study. The chapter starts with some basic definition of probability, explains non-intrusive Polynomial Chaos methods and, at the end, shows some more advanced techniques used today. The chapter shows an overview of all the most common techniques that have been used in UQ for CFD and there is the presentation of new ideas that will become more common in the coming years. There is a clear trend from bespoke solution towards more automatic UQ methods.
