I don t know if you already get answers for the above questions.
For the +/* operators, we should respectively refers to RandomMixture & ProductDistribution for more details
import openturns as ot
a = ot.Normal() b = ot.LogNormal() #c = a*b ==> ProductDistribution distribution — OpenTURNS documentationc = ot.ProductDistribution(a, b) 
# d = a + b ==> RandomMixture — OpenTURNS documentation
|   |

 d = ot.RandomMixture([a, b])

For example, a = ot.Normal() b = ot.LogNormal() c = a*b    When calculating probabilities of failure using a limit state function, are there guidelines for when it is faster and/or more accurate to write the limit state function as an algebraic expression of the random variables compared to using FORM or SORM with a Function or NumericalMathFunction?    Thanks, Phil _______________________________________________
