#### Abstract

The notion of probabilistic metric spaces (or statistical metric spaces) was introduced and studied by Menger [19] which is a generalization of metric space, and the study of these spaces was expanede rapidly with the pioneering works of Schweizer-Sklar [25]-[26]. The theory of probabilistic metric spaces is of fundamental importance in probabilistic function analysis. For the detailed discussions of these spaces and their applications, we refer to [9], [10], [28], [30]-[32], [36] and [39].
