By Kurt Marti, Yuri Ermoliev, Marek Makowski

Support for addressing the on-going worldwide adjustments wishes suggestions for brand spanking new medical difficulties which in flip require new suggestions and instruments. A key factor issues an enormous number of irreducible uncertainties, together with severe occasions of excessive multidimensional results, e.g., the weather switch. The hassle is anxious with huge, immense charges as opposed to giant uncertainties of utmost affects. conventional medical ways depend on genuine observations and experiments. but no enough observations exist for brand new difficulties, and "pure" experiments, and studying through doing could be pricey, risky, or very unlikely. moreover, the to be had ancient observations are frequently infected by means of previous activities, and guidelines. therefore, instruments are awarded for the specific therapy of uncertainties utilizing "synthetic" details composed of accessible "hard" info from historic observations, the result of attainable experiments, and medical evidence, in addition to "soft" info from specialists' evaluations, and scenarios.

66]. In this experiment prominent representatives of different methodologies were asked to provide numerical evaluation of outputs of systems described by equations with uncertain parameters. Different types of sources of uncertainty were represented in this experiment, allowing for using different types of models, and different methods for aggregation of uncertainty. The results of this experiment, described in [23], show that the usage of different approaches resulted in different evaluations.
