Can the Minimum Rule of Possibility Theory Be Extended to Belief Functions?
Abstract. When merging belief functions, Dempster rule of combination is justified only when sources can be considered as independent. When dependencies are ill-known, it is usual ...

When in Doubt ... Be Indecisive
For a presented case, a Bayesian network classifier in essence computes a posterior probability distribution over its class variable. Based upon this distribution, the classifier&#...

Soft Constraints Processing over Divisible Residuated Lattices
We claim that divisible residuated lattices (DRLs) can act as a unifying evaluation framework for soft constraint satisfaction problems (soft CSPs). DRLs form the algebraic semanti...

A Generalization of the Pignistic Transform for Partial Bet
The Transferable Belief Model is a powerful interpretation of belief function theory where decision making is based on the pignistic transform. Smets has proposed a generalization ...

Knowledge Base Stratification and Merging Based on Degree of Support
Most operators for merging multiple knowledge bases (where each is a set of formulae) aim to produce a knowledge base as output that best reflects the information available in the ...

Using Transfinite Ordinal Conditional Functions
Abstract. Ordinal Conditional Functions (OCFs) are one of the predominant frameworks to define belief change operators. In his original paper Spohn defines OCFs as functions from t...

The Non-archimedean Polynomials and Merging of Stratified Knowledge Bases
In this paper, a new algebraic representation by the non-Archimedean fields is proposed to model stratified/ranked knowledge bases. The non-Archimedean representation is in the for...

Different Representations of Fuzzy Vectors
Fuzzy vectors were introduced as a description of imprecise quantities whose uncertainty originates from vagueness, not from a probabilistic model. Support functions are a classica...

Inference from Multinomial Data Based on a MLE-Dominance Criterion
We consider the problem of inference from multinomial data with chances θ, subject to the a-priori information that the true parameter vector θ belongs to a known convex polytope...
