This course first introduces selected aspects of probabilistic seismic hazard analysis. In addition to introducing the basic terms of PSHA, it describes the different types of uncertainties one has to deal with in this context and illustrates the sensitivity of seismic hazard calculations to various components of the analysis. The lectures are complemented with practices based on softwares  which are implemented on the students personal computers.
