Summary
"Although numerous scientific articles have been published discussing various aspects of risk analysis and risk evaluation, very few textbooks exist on the subject. Risk Assessment: Theory, Methods, and Applications provides undergraduate and graduate students, practitioners, and researchers with a relevant and modern guide to current applications of risk analysis.

All methods for risk analysis are outlined in a uniform fashion: an introduction; objectives and application; qualitative and quantitative description; required resources required; and related advantages and disadvantages"--
