Summary: An introduction to the worst scenario method is given. We start with an example and a general abstract scheme. An analysis of the method both on the continuous and approximate levels is discussed. We show a possible incorporation of the method into the fuzzy set theory. Finally, we present a survey of applications published during the last decade. (English)
