Abstract: The reliability analysis of the load-sharing systems under different
behaviors of the load has been provided in this article. An inverse
problem of determining the load function by having requirements concerning
the system survivor function is solved. Simple and explicit expressions
for computing the load function are provided under the assumption
that the Weibull probability distributions of time to failure are
derived. A standby system consisting of two units under the changeable
load is studied. The various numerical examples illustrate the proposed
models.

Abstract: A robust one-class classification model as an extension of Campbell
and Bennett's (C--B) novelty detection model on the case of interval-valued
training data is proposed in the paper. It is shown that the dual
optimization problem to a linear program in the C--B model has a nice
property allowing to represent it as a set of simple linear programs.
It is proposed also to replace the Gaussian kernel in the obtained
linear support vector machines by the well-known triangular kernel
which can be regarded as an approximation of the Gaussian kernel.
This replacement allows us to get a finite set of simple linear optimization
problems for dealing with interval-valued data. Numerical experiments
with synthetic and real data illustrate performance of the proposed
model.

Abstract: Classification algorithms based on different forms of support vector
machines (SVMs) for dealing with interval-valued training data are
proposed in the paper. L2-norm and L_infinity-norm SVMs are used
for constructing the algorithms. The main idea allowing us to represent
the complex optimization problems as a set of simple linear or quadratic
programming problems is to approximate the Gaussian kernel by the
well-known triangular and Epanechnikov kernels. The minimax strategy
is used to choose an optimal probability distribution from the set
and to construct optimal separating functions.

Abstract: Two imprecise individual risk models of insurance are presented and
studied in this paper. The models use the beta-binomial and the negative
binomial imprecise statistical models, which can be regarded as sets
of the corresponding distributions of claims. The sets of distributions
strongly depend on prior statistical information about claims and
their use can give an advantage when we have little prior information.
The results of these models are interval-valued probabilities for
the event that aggregate claims will exceed the premium. Moreover,
it is shown how to construct the corresponding fuzzy probabilities.
Numerical examples illustrate the proposed imprecise models.

Abstract: This paper presents an investigation into generalised Bayesian analysis
of warranty contracts, using sets of prior distributions within the
theory of imprecise probability. Explicit expressions are derived
for optimal lower and upper bounds for the expected profit for the
manufacturer of a product, corresponding to an imprecise negative
binomial model for which two sets of prior distributions are studied.
The results can be used to set a maximum value of compensation such
that the manufacturer's expected profit remains positive, under vague
prior knowledge.

Utkin L and Wiencierz A (2015), "Improving over-fitting in ensemble regression by imprecise probabilities", Information Sciences. Vol. 317, pp. 315-328.
Abstract: In this paper, generalized versions of two ensemble methods for regression
based on variants of the original AdaBoost algorithm are proposed.
The generalization of these regression methods consists in restricting
the unit simplex for the weights of the instances to a smaller set
of weighting probabilities. Various imprecise statistical models
can be used to obtain a restricted set of weighting probabilities,
whose sizes each depend on a single parameter. For particular choices
of this parameter, the proposed algorithms reduce to standard AdaBoost-based
regression algorithms or to standard regression. The main advantage
of the proposed algorithms compared to the basic AdaBoost-based regression
methods is that they have less tendency to over-fitting, because
the weights of the hard instances are restricted. Several simulations
and applications furthermore indicate a better performance of the
proposed regression methods in comparison with the corresponding
standard regression methods.

Utkin L and Zhuk Y (2015), "Robust classifiers using imprecise probability models and importance of classes", International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools. Vol. 24(1), pp. 1-28.
Abstract: A framework for constructing robust classification models is proposed
in the paper. An assumption about importance of one of the classes
in comparison with other classes is incorporated into the models.
It often takes place in the real application, for example, in reliability,
in medical diagnostic, etc. A main idea underlying the models is
to consider a set of probability distributions on training examples
produced by the imprecise probability models such as linear-vacuous
mixture and constant odd-ratio contaminated models. Extreme points
of the sets of probability distributions are a main tool for constructing
the robust classifiers. It is shown that algorithms for computing
optimal classification parameters are reduced to a finite number
of weighted support vector machines with weights determined by the
extreme points. Experimental results with synthetic and real data
illustrate the proposed models.

Abstract: In this paper, we study methods for reliability analysis of the loadshare
models. In load-share systems, component or system failure rates
depend on the working state of the other components in the system
or on changeable conditions of system functioning. A special type
of load, namely the piecewise constant load is investigated. The
main assumption used in the paper is the so-called `condition of
the residual lifetime conservation' of the system, which is equivalent
to the condition of continuity of the reliability (survivor) function.
Rather simple recurrent expressions are obtained for computing reliability
measures. Various numerical examples illustrate the proposed models.

Abstract: An extension of the DS/AHP method is proposed in the paper. It takes
into account the fact that the multi-criteria decision problem might
have several levels of criteria. Moreover, it is assumed that expert
judgments concerning the criteria are imprecise and incomplete. The
proposed extension also uses groups of experts or decision makers
for comparing decision alternatives and criteria. However, it does
not require assigning favorability values for groups of decision
alternatives and criteria. The computation procedure for processing
and aggregating the incomplete information about criteria and decision
alternatives is reduced to solving a finite set of linear programming
problems. Numerical examples explain in detail and illustrate the
proposed approach.

Abstract: When it is difficult to get learning data during the training time,
we have to classify objects by having extremely small information
about their feature. It is assumed in the paper that only some average
or mean value of every feature and the lower and upper bounds of
a set of its values are known. The main idea for constructing new
classification models taking into account this information is to
form a set of probability distributions bounded by some lower and
upper probability distribution functions (a p-box). A discriminant
function is derived in order to maximise the risk measure over the
set of distributions and to minimise it over a set of classification
parameters. The algorithm for classification is reduced to a parametric
linear programming problem.

Abstract: The imprecise voting multi-criteria decision problem depends on the
way for combining the judgments of experts or a decision maker. Modifications
of the DS/AHP method (Dempster-Shafer theory/analytic hierarchy process)
are studied in the paper. These modifications use groups of experts
or decision makers for comparing decision alternatives and criteria
and they do not require assigning favourability values for groups
of decision alternatives and criteria. Two ways are proposed for
combining the expert judgments. The first way uses the extended total
probability theorem for dealing with conditional basic probability
assignments. The second way considers every criterion as an unreliable
source of evidence and uses Dempster's combination rule. Moreover,
the imprecise Dirichlet model is applied to the modifications for
making cautious decision. Numerical examples explain and illustrate
the proposed modifications.

Abstract: To develop a general reliability theory, taking into account various
sources of information and a lack of satisfactory data on which estimates
of system parameters can be based, the theory of coherent imprecise
probabilities can be used. The purpose of the paper is to study the
reliability of systems based on coherent imprecise probability models,
taking into account the ageing aspect of the lifetime distributions,
independence of system components, and a lack of satisfactory data.
We use some new non-parametric life distribution classes which generalize
the well-known increasing and decreasing failure rate distributions
and can represent various judgements related to lifetime distributions.
In this paper we apply the theory of coherent imprecise probabilities
to reliability analysis of monotone systems.

Abstract: Risk of an unwanted event happening is defined as the probability
of the occurrence of this event multiplied by the consequences. It
very often happens that the probability distributions cannot be determined
exactly, either due to measurement imperfections, or due to more
fundamental reasons, such as insufficient available information.
Therefore, it is proposed in the paper an approach for risk analysis
based on the imprecise probability theory. It is shown how the natural
extension as a main mathematical tool for dealing with incomplete
information can be adopted for computing the values of the system
risk.

Abstract: In practice, it is not likely that enough data about the failure behavior
can be collected to use the probability for reliability analyzing.
In some cases, the information we have about the functioning of components
and systems is not based on statistics, but is of a linguistic nature.
Very often the reliability of the system is presented in a form of
the mean time to failure (MTTF) or comparative MTTFs. In order to
use this reliability measure for further computations the new models
have to be developed. A theory of imprecise probabilities might be
a basis for reliability analyzing when we have such the incomplete
information about reliability behavior of systems. The basic tool
for computing new reliability measures is the natural extension which
can be regarded as a linear optimization problem. The reliability
of series, parallel, cold standby, m-out-of-n and simple repairable
systems is provided by using the natural extension. The chapter may
be viewed as an attempt to generalize the classical reliability theory
based on the probabilistic models and to study the basic properties
and advantages of the new reliability models.

Abstract: The natural extension, the key concept for the construction of coherent
imprecise models, can appear in different equivalent forms. Each
of them has pros and cons in the context of specific applications.
The use of a proper form can substantially facilitate the inference
and computation of the previsions of interest. The current paper
concerns four forms of the natural extension representation. It is
demonstrated that all of them are equivalent and one, discussed in
the last instance, is prominent solely for gambles defined on continuous
possibility sets. It is proven that the solution of the natural extension
problem for continuous gambles exists on the degenerate distributions.
Partial information and a characteristic to be calculated can be
thought as the expectations of some real-valued functions defined
on the possibility space. As they are expectations, they can be expressed
as functions of probability density functions and proper real-valued
functions (gambles). Each piece of the partial information acts as
a constraint to the probability distributions. All together the constraints
define the area of all distributions over which the interval of the
desired statistical characteristic will be searched. Throughout the
paper the natural extension is analyzed through the prism of reliability
application.

Abstract: Methods for computing the reliability of complex systems described
in the current paper are grounded on partial information on system
components. A tool for inferring the intervals is the natural extension
and the upper and lower bounds of the characteristics to be interpreted
as coherent upper and lower previsions. A generic algorithm to find
a solution of the natural extension in a practically affordable way
braking down the general problem into problems that are much easier
to solve is described. In general this can be made at the cost of
a lesser precision in the previsions of interest. It is also shown
that for some particular cases the genuine, minimally coherent, solutions
can be found through the algorithm developed. The second part of
the paper is devoted to those cases when the reliability of components
constituting a system is represented by identical interval-valued
reliability characteristics. That is, all the components are characterized,
for example, by probabilities to failure in the same time interval,
or by mean times to failure or some others. Often namely these particular
cases take place in reliability analysis practice. In this respect,
based on the previous works by the authors of the current paper some
new findings have been disclosed and new results obtained on particular
practical cases.

Abstract: In processing expert judgements, it is common to assign experts' opinions
different degree of plausibility or probability. This results in
constructing some kind of hierarchical model. Hierarchical models
are widely used in Bayesian inference. Several models have been proposed
by the adherents of imprecise statistical reasoning. This paper describes
a new hierarchical uncertainty model of a more general form: first-
and second-order uncertainty models are both imprecise. We demonstrate
that depending on what kind of evidence the modeller has at hand
and the reliability quantifying the quality of expert judgement one
comes to different rules of combination. It is shown that the rules
of combination known in imprecise statistical reasoning can be inferred
from the approach proposed in the paper. We describe how the model
can be used to generate first-order coherent interval-valued previsions.
One of the other particularities of this paper is the use of the
natural extension in its ''primal'' and ''dual'' form which we consider
a very constructive tool for some applications.

Abstract: The requirement that precise probabilities be available is often not
realistic in many applications. Some other consistent probabilistic
approaches are needed to allow for imprecision in statistical reasoning.
In this paper the theory of coherent imprecise previsions is employed
to generalise discrete Markov chains to imprecise probabilities.
A general procedure of imprecise probability elicitation is analysed
as well. An example is provided.

Abstract: Security engineering is concerned with whether a system can survive
accidental or intentional attacks on it from outside. One of the
most important problems in security engineering is the numerical
evaluation of the security efficiency. According to Brocklehurst
et all. (Brocklehurst, 94), it is necessary to consider the effort,
reward, owner's loss and expenses as a measures of security. In order
to compute the new generalized or system security characteristics
from the above, it is proposed to use the Walley's theory of imprecise
probabilities. The basic tool for computing new generalized security
measures from the initial judgements is the natural extension which
can be regarded as a linear optimization problem. As examples we
analyze the operational security of an information system developed
as a client-server system with the hierarchical structure.

Utkin L (2000), "Imprecise reliability analysis by comparative judgements", In Proceedings of the Second Int. Conf. on Mathematical Methods in Reliability. Bordeaux, France , pp. 1005-1008.
Abstract: In some cases, the information we have about the functioning of components
and systems is of a linguistic nature, i.e. the information is conveyed
by statements in natural language in a form of comparative judgements.
For example, there is a comparative judgement such as ''The component
A failure before time instant 10 hours is at least as probable as
the component B failure before time instant 20 hours''. Note that
we do not know about the specified component lifetime distributions
and about condition of the component independence. To analyze the
reliability of a system by such the partial information and comparative
judgements and to make maximal use of the available information without
additional assumptions, the theory of imprecise probabilities can
be employed. The reliability analysis in this case is reduced to
solution of the linear optimization problems. It is proved that the
presented approach is strong from the mathematical point of view
and can be applied to various systems.

Abstract: The judgements taking into account the ageing aspect of the lifetime
distributions (three phases of the so-called ''bathtub'' curve characterizing
the lifetime evolution of a system: early failure, useful life, wear-out
periods) play an important role in reliability analysis. Therefore,
we introduce new generalized lifetime distribution classes which
allow us to obtain more precise and flexible reliability measures
for systems than ageing classes introduced by Barlow and Proschan.
The various properties of classes are presented. The reliability
analysis of systems is given under condition that information on
the reliability is restricted by the lower and upper component mean
times to failure.

Abstract: How to compute reliability of a system when the information is restricted
by the lower and upper component mean time to failure and there are
judgements taken into account the ageing aspect of the lifetime distributions?
To take into account the above problems, some new flexible lifetime
distribution classes H(r,s) are introduced. The proposed distribution
classes generalize the known IFRA and DFRA classes and can cover
a wide variety of kinds of partial and precise reliability information.
An efficient statistical method is developed for calculating parameters
r and s of the distribution classes from statistical data (random
time to failure). Numerical examples illustrate the methods.

Abstract: Many reliability measures are based on conditional probabilities,
for example, failure rate, mean residual time to failure, the probability
of residual time to failure, etc. The paper addresses the issue of
how to calculate the conditional reliability characteristics in the
case of a lack of information about probability distributions. The
theory of coherent imprecise previsions is employed to solve the
problem in a consistent way compatible with the conventional approach.
Three methods of computing conditional reliability measures are considered
and developed in the paper: the generalized Bayes rule, the cut-prevision
rule, and the linear-fractional programming method.

Abstract: Systems cannot be simply viewed as failed or non-failed in a large
variety of cases and the system success and failure should be characterized
by fuzzy states. At the same time the system failure behavior is
fully characterized in the context of the probability measures. The
traditional approach for system analysing assumes that probabilities
of the system crisp states are known. However, it is difficult sometimes
to obtain these probabilities and only bounds of the levels of performance
are known. One of the most promising tool for reliability assessments
by such partial information is the Walley's theory of coherent imprecise
probabilities. In the present paper, application of this theory to
reliability of systems with fuzzy states are studied.

Abstract: The paper discusses the important aspects of the reliability of systems
with an imprecise general model of the structure function. It is
assumed that the information about reliability behavior of components
is restricted by the mean levels of component performance. In this
case the classical reliability theory cannot provide a way for analyzing
the reliability of systems. The theory of imprecise probabilities
may be a basis in developing a general reliability theory which allows
us to solve such problems. The basic tool for computing new reliability
measures is the natural extension which can be regarded as a linear
optimization problem. However, the linear programming computations
will become impracticable when the number of components in the system
is large. Therefore, the main aim of the paper is to obtain explicit
expressions for computing the system reliability measures. We analyze
the reliability of general structures and typical systems. The numerical
examples illustrate the usefulness of the presented approach to reliability
analyzing.

Abstract: To develop a general reliability theory taking into account various
sources of information and a lack of satisfactory data on which estimates
of system parameters can be based, the theory of imprecise probabilities
can be used. The purpose of the paper is to study structural reliability
based on the imprecise probability models taking into account the
ageing aspect of the lifetime distributions, independence of system
components, and a lack of satisfactory data. We use the new non-parametric
life distribution classes which generalize the well-known increasing
and decreasing failure rate distributions and can represent various
judgements related to the lifetime distributions. In this paper we
apply the theory of imprecise probabilities to reliability analysis
of monotone systems.

Abstract: New methods of reliability analysis by limited and incomplete information
about the component reliability are studied. The methods are based
on usage the imprecise probability theory. There is complete information
about reliability of a system and its components if (i) a system
structure is known; (ii) the precise probability component lifetime
distributions are known; (iii) there is information about independence
of the system components. It is shown that the reliability analysis
problems can be reduced to special optimization problems that are
linear for some important special cases. The present methods allow
us to use only available information without additional assumption
that may be incorrect. New lifetime distribution classes are introduced.
These classes generalize the well-known increasing and decreasing
failure rate distributions and can represent various quantitative
and qualitative judgements related to lifetime distributions. The
statistical inference procedure for computing the parameters of classes
from sample data is proposed. A lot of examples illustrate new methods.
The book is recommended to scientists and engineers dealing with
the reliability and safety analysis and prediction.

Abstract: In practice, it is not likely that enough data about the failure or
repair behavior can be collected to correctly use the probability
measure for reliability analyzing. Moreover, in some cases, the information
we have about the functioning of components and systems is not based
on statistics, but is of a linguistic nature, i.e. the information
is conveyed by statements in natural language. Very often the reliability
of the system is presented in a form of the mean time to failure
(MTTF) or comparative MTTF. In order to use this reliability measure
for future computations the new models have to be developed. A theory
of imprecise probabilities might be a basis for reliability analyzing
when we have such the incomplete information about reliability behavior
of the system. The paper may be viewed as an attempt to generalize
the classical reliability theory based on the probabilistic models
and to study the basic properties and advantages of the new reliability
models.

Abstract: In this paper we study fuzzy time-dependent availability and unavailability
in the possibility context. These reliability characteristics are
described by possibility and necessity distribution functions. We
present recursive algorithms to compute the fuzzy reliability of
typical repairable systems, including series, parallel, k-out-of-n,
and consecutive-k-out-of-n.
