Abstract

Robert Féron invented fuzzy random variables in the mid-seventies. As such, his works deserve due recognition among specialists of soft methods in probability and statistics. This short paper surveys his contributions to information theory, generalized distances, and the joint use of probability and fuzzy set theories. An extensive bibliography of his publications is provided.
