Abstract : The mathematics of extrapolating known statistics of components to the probability density function of a system's performance measure is considered. Quadrature sum integration schemes for evaluating the resulting required integration are examined, and alternate integral approximation schemes are developed utilizing Monte Carlo methods. A simple electrical circuit example illustrates the use of these techniques. (Author)
