    A bidding situation in which there is uncertainty about the value of the item of interest is modeled. The uncertainty is modeled in probabilistic terms, and the model allows the errors of estimation (the differences between expected values and the actual value) of the bidders to be dependent....

    Concept of accidental risk is intended to be an objective measure for assessing the risk of accidents in the technosphere. Metric of risk should combine estimation both probability (possibility) of the accident and the damage it caused. For various reasons, any parameter of risk has uncertainty....

    The multiple-bounded uncertainty choice (MBUC) value elicitation method allows respondents to indicate qualitative levels of uncertainty, as opposed to a simple yes or no, across a range of prices. We argue that MBUC responses convey subjective probabilities. We examine the decision process of...

    The expected numbers of events of several backgrounds in experiment are estimated from Monte Carlo experiments. In the analysis we take into account an integrated luminosity of Monte Carlo experiments. The expected number of events allows to construct the distribution of probabilities of number...

    This research grew out of an investigation of utilization in capacity expansion. The utilization at any time is the demand divided by the capacity. When there is uncertainty about the evolution of demand, it is appropriate to model the demand as a stochastic process, and thus the utilization...

    In this paper we model production technology in a state-contingent framework. Our model analyzes production under uncertainty without being explicit about the nature of producer risk preferences. In our model producers' risk preferences are captured by the risk-neutral probabilities they assign...

    This paper presents a solution procedure for discrete stochastic programs with recourse (linear programs under uncertainty). It views the m stochastic elements of the requirements vector as an m-dimensional space in which each combination of the discrete values is a lattice point. For a given...
