Concept of accidental risk is intended to be an objective measure for assessing the risk of accidents in the technosphere. Metric of risk should combine estimation both probability (possibility) of the accident and the damage it caused. For various reasons, any parameter of risk has uncertainty. The problem of uncertainty quantifying arose very early in the study of accidental risk. Often used in practice dotted (scalar) estimation of probabilistic component of risk metric are in most cases inadequate since embody great internal uncertainty

We argue that MBUC responses convey subjective probabilities. We examine the decision process of...

However, past studies indicate that factors unrelated to betrayal aversion, such as loss aversion, could contribute to differences between...

    The author ponders on the definition of risk. He explains why he considers risk the product of consequence and likelihood. He believes that risk cannot be separated from perceptions. He claims the common use of risk is linked to chance and negative outcomes. He considers the societal aspect of risk.
