Mixed Uncertainties Modeling and Applications

Abstract: Uncertainty is increasingly encountered and attracting great attention in the scientific community. Very often in practice, data are expressed in soft forms such as intervals, histograms, functions, and probability distributions, which are generally called soft data. Separately, probabilities are also described as sets or intervals to express subjective probability under uncertainties, leading to the concept of soft probability. In this talk, I will introduce uncertainty modeling with soft statistics and probability, its associated mathematical foundation, and a few inferential models developed under this framework. Two applications in financial econometrics, one on regression and one on volatility modeling, will be presented.
