Unimodality, Independence Lead to NP-Hardness of Interval Probability Problems

Unimodality, Independence Lead to NP-Hardness of Interval Probability Problems In many real-life situations, we only have partial information about probabilities. This information is usually described by bounds on moments, on probabilities of certain events, etc. –i.e., by characteristics c(p) which are linear in terms of the unknown probabilities p j. If we know interval bounds on some such characteristics $$ \underline{a}_i\leq c_i(p)\leq \bar{a}_i $$ , and we are interested in a characteristic c(p), then we can find the bounds on c(p) by solving a linear programming problem. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Reliable Computing Springer Journals
