Dierent representations of imprecise probabilities have been proposed, such as evidence theory, coherent behavioral theory, possibility theory, probability bound analysis, F-probabilities, fuzzy probabilities, and clouds. Interval-valued probabilities are used such that uncertainty is distinguished from variability. In this paper, we proposed a new form of imprecise probabilities based on generalized or modal intervals. Generalized intervals are algebraically closed under the Kaucher arithmetic…

TLDR
This paper considers one approach to Bayes’ formula based probabilistic inference under interval values of relevant probabilities and shows that it proves to be the best from the viewpoint of the required amount of calculations and visual representation of the results.
Multiscale Uncertainty Quantification Based on a Generalized Hidden Markov Model
TLDR
A generalized hidden Markov model (GHMM) is proposed to quantify aleatory and epistemic uncertainties simultaneously in multiscale system analysis based on a new imprecise probability theory that has the form of generalized interval.
Multiscale Variability and Uncertainty Quantification Based on a Generalized Multiscale Markov Model
Variability is inherent randomness in systems, whereas uncertainty is due to lack of knowledge. In this paper, a generalized multiscale Markov (GMM) model is proposed to quantify variability and
Cross-Scale, Cross-Domain Model Validation Based on Generalized Hidden Markov Model and Generalized Interval Bayes' Rule
TLDR
A recently proposed generalized hidden Markov model (GHMM) is used for cross-scale and cross-domain information fusion under the two types of uncertainties, and the dependency relationships among the observable and hidden state variables at multiple scales and physical domains are captured by generalized interval probability.
Trapezoidal intuitionistic fuzzy number with some arithmetic operations and its application on reliability evaluation
TLDR
Expressions for computing the fuzzy reliability of a series system, parallel system, series-parallel and parallel-series system following TrIFNs have been described and an imprecise failure to start of a truck using TrIFN is taken.

TLDR
A reliable KMC (R-KMC) mechanism is proposed in which sampling is based on random sets instead of random numbers to improve the robustness of KMC results.

The Value of Using Imprecise Probabilities in Engineering Design
TLDR
The hypothesis is that, in engineering design decisions, it is valuable to explicitly represent this imprecision by using imprecise probabilities, and this hypothesis is supported with a computational experiment in which a pressure vessel is designed using two approaches, both variations of utility-based decision making.

TLDR
In a wide class of situations of uncertainty, the available information concerning the event space can be described as follows: there exists a true probability that is only known to belong to a certain set P of probabilities: moreover, the lower envelope f of P is a belief function, and characterizes P, i.e., P is the set of all probabilities that dominate f.
A new approach to updating beliefs
TLDR
It is shown here how to extend the definition of conditional probability to nonmeasurable sets, in order to get notions of inner and outer conditional probabilities, which can be viewed as best approximations to the true conditional probability, given the lack of information.

In this article a concept of conditional fuzzy measure is presented, which is a generalization of conditional probability measure. Its properties are studied in the general case and in some

TLDR
The basic theoretical and numerical properties of clouds are discussed, and they are related to histograms, cumulative distribution functions, and likelihood ratios, and to consistent possibility and necessity measures of Jamison and Lodwick.

TLDR
This book develops an alternative to the additive set functions and the rule of conditioning of the Bayesian theory: set functions that need only be what Choquet called "monotone of order of infinity." and Dempster's rule for combining such set functions.
