The uncertainties in various Electromagnetic (EM) problems may present a significant effect on the properties of the involved field components, and thus, they must be taken into consideration. However, there are cases when a number of stochastic inputs may feature a low influence on the variability of the outputs of interest. Having this in mind, a dimensionality reduction of the Polynomial Chaos (PC) technique is performed, by firstly applying a sensitivity analysis method to the stochastic inputs of multi-dimensional random problems. Therefore, the computational cost of the PC method is reduced, making it more efficient, as only a trivial accuracy loss is observed. We demonstrate numerical results about EM wave propagation in two test cases and a patch antenna problem. Comparisons with the Monte Carlo and the standard PC techniques prove that satisfying outcomes can be extracted with the proposed dimensionality-reduction technique. View Full-Text
