In April 2016 Manchester eScholar was replaced by the University of Manchester’s new Research Information Management System, Pure. In the autumn the University’s research outputs will be available to search and browse via a new Research Portal. Until then the University’s full publication record can be accessed via a temporary portal and the old eScholar content is available to search and browse via this archive.

We construct stochastic Galerkin approximations to the solution of a first-order system of PDEs with random coefficients. Under the standard finite-dimensional noise assumption, we transform the variational saddle point problem to a parametric deterministic one. Approximations are constructed by combining mixed finite elements on the computational domain with $M$-variate tensor product polynomials. We study the inf-sup stability and well-posedness of the continuous and finite-dimensional problems, the regularity of solutions with respect to the $M$ parameters describing the random coefficients, and establish a priori error estimates for stochastic Galerkin finite element approximations.
