Optimal uncertainty quantification (OUQ) is a framework for nu- merical extreme-case analysis of stochastic systems with imperfect knowl- edge of the underlying probability distribution and functions/events. This paper presents sufficient conditions (when underlying functions are known) under which an OUQ problem can be reformulated as a finite-dimensional convex optimization problem.
