In this chapter, the Chemical Plant Protection game is extended to deal with input parameters with distribution-free uncertainties [1] The so-called interval CPP game is defined. Two algorithms, namely, the interval bi-matrix game solver (IBGS) and the interval CPP game solver (ICGS), are proposed.
