It is exiting to learn that model reduction could help to save us from the financial crisis.

In the paper they apply POD to some nonlinear partial integro-differential equation. I should confess that I have not understood the equation by itself, it is quite a different topic from PDEs that I was working with.

What is interesting that they have been ably to use a reduced model for an optimization, at least partly. If I have understood correctly, they have computed a POD basis for some chosen parameters but then while projecting they have preserved some parameters. It is also working for normal model reduction provided the range of parameters is small.
