... defined probabilistic distributions. This is not true for a variety of engineering problems where uncertainty is usually given in terms of interval ranges. In this case, interval analysis or possibility theory can be used instead of probability theory. This paper shows how possibility theory can be used...

.... A. Hazelrigg, for several very useful discussions on this work. The authors also thank Dr. William Oberkampf and Dr. Marty Pilch for proposing a way to resolve the paradox that occurs when possibility theory is used to assess the safety of series systems in section 2.5. If we have enough information...
