Finding a Link between Randomness and Fuzziness

If sample realizations are intervals, if the upper and the lower boundaries of such intervals are realizations of two independently distributed random variables, the two probability laws together lead to some interesting assertions. In this article, we shall attempt to remove certain confusions regarding the relationship between probability theory and fuzzy mathematics.
