Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


When we analyse some quality of service (QoS) properties, such as run time, accuracy and reliability, errors need to be taken into account. Although interval arithmetic can deal with worst-case analysis; for average-case analysis, we need some other methods. In this paper we will introduce the importance and methodology of developing a bell-curve calculus. We will explain the status of our current research and perform analysis on problems we have encountered.
