In this chapter, we formulate the probabilistic ranking queries on uncertain data. We first introduce two basic uncertain data models and basic probabilistic ranking queries. Then, we discuss three extended uncertain data models that suit different application scenarios. Ranking queries on the extended uncertain data models are also developed.
