This paper presents physics-based surrogate modeling algorithms for systems governed by parameterized partial differential equations (PDEs) commonly encountered in design optimization and uncertainty analysis. We first outline unsupervised learning approaches that leverage advances in the machine learning literature for a meshfree solution of PDEs. Subsequently, we propose continuum and discrete formulations for systems governed by parameterized steady-state PDEs. We consider the case of both deterministically and randomly parameterized systems. The basic idea is to embody the design variables or uncertain parameters in additional dimensions of the governing PDEs along with the spatial coordinates. We show that the undetermined parameters of the surrogate model can be estimated by minimizing a physics-based objective function derived using a multidimensional least-squares collocation or the Bubnov-Galerkin scheme. This potentially allows us to construct surrogate models without using data from computer experiments on a deterministic analysis code. Finally, we also outline an extension of the present appraoch to directly approximate the density function of random algebraic equations.
