Enrico Peruzzo is a PhD student in Mathematics for Industrial Technologies at the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, Italy, under the supervision of prof. Franco Flandoli. His research activity is carried out in collaboration with the research group of prof. Paolo Papale (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia, Pisa) and deals with the use of probabilistic methods in modelling volcanic processes. The poster presented at the EGU 2009 is focused on the stochastic quantization method for the approximation of a continuous probability density function with a discrete one; this technique reduces the number of numerical simulations required to get a reasonably complete picture of the possible eruptive conditions at a considered volcano.
