• ###### calibration
• Convert an uncertainty quoted in a handbook, manufacturer's specification, calibration certificate, etc., that is a stated multiple of an estimated standard deviation to a standard uncertainty by dividing the quoted uncertainty by the multiplier. (nist.gov)
• Convert an uncertainty quoted in a handbook, manufacturer's specification, calibration certificate, etc., that defines a 'confidence interval' having a stated level of confidence, such as 95 % or 99 %, to a standard uncertainty by treating the quoted uncertainty as if a normal probability distribution had been used to calculate it (unless otherwise indicated) and dividing it by the appropriate factor for such a distribution. (nist.gov)

• ###### Policy
• That is, exact predictions of policy outcomes are routine, while expressions of uncertainty are rare. (pnas.org)
• ###### form

• ###### terms
• We examine these three classes of decisions in terms of how to characterize, assess, and convey the uncertainties relevant to each. (pnas.org)
• ###### relevant
• On the one hand, the uncertainties that it addresses must be reduced to their decision-relevant elements. (pnas.org)
• Several earlier measurements of the relevant rate have shown variations of a factor of 3 or so, so that the uncertainty in the rate is not new. (realclimate.org)
• ###### future
• Everyone with HIV infection faces uncertainty about the future whether they've been sick and didn't improve until the triple therapy was introduced, or whether they've been well on the triple therapy all along. (thebody.com)

• ###### cannot
• Some of that uncertainty concerns values: What do we want when we cannot have everything? (pnas.org)
• By that what I mean is that there is some hidden concept that we have not yet figured out which would correct the uncertainty which we currently cannot circumvent. (physicsforums.com)
• Thus I am uncertain as to why I love - at least, I cannot give a reason for my love - and because of this uncertainty, I am certain that I have found love indeed, for I love her , and love has nothing to do with any combination of attributes or uses that may serve as a reason. (patheos.com)
• ###### studies
• All you have to do is selectively highlight uncertainty, selectively attack the existing studies one by one, and ignore the weight of the evidence. (prospect.org)
• ###### investment
• Examining a panel of over 4,000 firms from 1996 to 2013 we find that R&D is relatively more sensitive to long-run uncertainty than investment, and in turn investment is relatively more sensitive to long-run uncertainty than hiring. (nber.org)
• In a simulation model we investigate the channels underlying this pecking-order response to long-run uncertainty, and show that lower depreciation rates and higher adjustment costs lead R&D and investment to be more sensitive to longer-run uncertainty than hiring. (nber.org)
• People who have been extremely sick and have faced the possibilities others only fear, are particularly aware, not only of the uncertainty but also of the investment. (thebody.com)
