Probabilistic Risk Assessment

With a couple of notable exceptions, only publications issued in the last 10 years have been referenced here; for those who want to find older documents, please check the External Links section and run a search on the recommended websites. References to publications on Fire PRA, Seismic PRA, etc. will be added later on; publications on Safety Goals and on Human Reliability Assessment will be posted in dedicated categories.
