We present a detailed survey of results and two new results on graphical models of uncertainty and associated optimization problems. We focus on two well-studied models, namely, the Random Failure (RF) model and the Linear Reliability Ordering (LRO) model. We present an FPT algorithm parameterized by the product of treewidth and max-degree for maximizing expected coverage in an uncertain graph under the RF model. We then consider the problem of finding the maximal core in a graph, which is

On the other hand, under the RF model, we show that the Probabilistic-Core problem is W[1]-hard for the parameter d, where d is the minimum degree of the core. We then design an FPT algorithm for the parameter treewidth.
