Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book contains a detailed theoretical presentation of these models and, in general, of some fundamental topics of risk theory within the framework of possibility theory. . The book concludes with a list of important open problems which can definitely deserve the attention of a reader interested in working in the topic. . its contents have a much wider field of applicability and will be definitely appreciated especially by readers who are looking for a compact . presentation of possibilistic models for risk theory applications."
