In this chapter, for complexity functions having the properties \(\varLambda 1 \), \(\varLambda 2\), and \(\varLambda 3\), upper bounds on the minimum complexity and algorithms for construction of deterministic decision trees for decision tables are considered. These bounds and algorithms are based on the use of so-called difference-bounded uncertainty measures for decision tables.
