Belief Induced by the Partial Knowledge of the Probabilities
: We construct the belief function that quantifies the agent' beliefs about which event of will occurred when he knows that the event is selected by a chance set-up and that ...

Global Conditioning for Probabilistic Inference in Belief Networks
In this paper we propose a new approach to probabilistic inference on belief networks, global conditioning, which is a simple generalization of Pearl's (1986b) method of loop...

A Logic for Default Reasoning About Probabilities
A logic is de ned that allows to express information about statistical probabilities and about degrees of belief in speci c propositions. By interpreting the twotypes of probabili...

A Decision-based View of Causality
Most traditional models of uncertainty have focused on the associational relationship among variables as captured by conditional dependence. In order to successfully manage intell...

A New Look at Causal Independence
Heckerman (1993) defined causal independence in terms of a set of temporal conditional independence statements. These statements formalized certain types of causal interaction whe...

Approximation Algorithms for the Loop Cutset Problem
We show how to nd a minimum weight loop cutset in a Bayesian network with high probability. Finding such a loop cutset is the rst step in the method of conditioning for inference....

Generating New Beliefs from Old
In previous work [BGHK92, BGHK93], we have studied the random-worlds approach--a particular (and quite powerful) method for generating degrees of belief (i.e., subjective probabil...
