Multivalued extension of conditional belief functions
- 110 Downloads
Uncertainty is present in most tasks that require intelligent behaviour, such as reasoning, decision making, etc. Therefore, several methods were proposed for handling uncertainty. One of them is the Dempster-Shafer theory. Its central problem is conditioning. We want to study here a multivalued extension of conditional belief function and examine its properties.
