Summary

Seismic hazard assessment is useful for public safety and business purposes. Although science cannot tell when the next earthquake will occur, it can reasonably indicate where and how large one is expected to be. This book presents theory and applications of deterministic seismic hazard analysis (DSHA), an alternative approach to probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA), which, although commonly used among seismologists, produces results that are incongruent with experiences in the catastrophic earthquakes of Italy, Haiti, and Japan.
