Sensitivity Analysis

Part of the Information Science and Statistics book series (ISS)

We construct probabilistic networks to support and solve problems of reasoning and decision making under uncertainty. In problems of reasoning under uncertainty the posterior probability of a single hypothesis variable is sometimes of interest. When the evidence set consists of a large number of findings or even when it consists of only a small number of findings questions concerning the impact of subsets of the evidence on the hypothesis or a competing hypothesis emerge.
