Abstract : Techniques for measuring amplitude probabilities and probability densities are summarized and previous results on the statistical uncertainty of such measurements are reviewed. A rigorous mathematical model of probability measurements is derived. It is shown that unknown correlations in the parameters of the model make it impossible to develop explicit expression for the mean square estimation error. Results are presented of a computer simulation of amplitude probability estimates and comparisons are made between experimental and computed mean square errors. (Author)
