    9 Open TURNS is a Unix/Linux software that presents itself as three ways : 
    10  * a scientific C++ library proposing an internal data model and algorithms dedicated to the treatment of uncertainties. The principal expected use of that library is to give to specific applications all the functionalities needed to treat uncertainties in studies. Targeted users are all engineers who want to introduce the probabilistic dimension in their so far deterministic studies. 
     9OpenTURNS is a Unix/Linux software with three main components : 
     10 * a scientific C++ library including an internal data model and algorithms dedicated to the treatment of uncertainties. The main function of that library is to give to specific applications all the functionalities needed to treat uncertainties in studies. Targeted users are all engineers who want to introduce the probabilistic dimension in their so far deterministic studies.

    12  * an independent application with a graphical user interface. The principal expected use of that independent application is to become the work environment for the specialist of the treatment of uncertainties. Targeted users are once again industrial practitioners: those that identify the treatment of uncertainties as a full task, generic to more than one engineering domain.

Targeted users are once again industrial practitioners: those that identify the treatment of uncertainties as a full task, generic to more than one engineering domain.

    1414 * a python module proposing high level operators in the probabilistic and statistical field. The principal expected use of that language is to offer all the scientific power of the C++ library with the conviviality of an interpreted language like Matlab’s one. The principal expected use of that python module is to facilitate the development of prototypes to try new algorithms or methods, to become an easy to use support for educational works, … Its vocation is to become a natural environment to integrate new developments within the field of uncertainty and sensitivity analysis. The public targeted is here research centers and the academic world.
