Catastrophe Risk Analysis in Technical Systems Using Bayesian Statistics
In this paper we present risk analysis models which are built on expert assessments of future risks. These models calibrate and aggregate judgements of the experts in order to predict the future risks. The models are constructed by applying Bayesian statistics.
