22
DETC06: Uncertainty Workshop; Evidence & Possibility Theories 22 Some General Remarks Possibility theory is a special case of evidence theory It can be applied only for non-conflicting (i.e. consonant) evidence (nested focal elements) A fuzzy set approach is usually followed

23
DETC06: Uncertainty Workshop; Evidence & Possibility Theories 23 Uncertainty Quantification : Membership Function - cut provides confidence level At each confidence level, or -cut, a set is defined as convex normal set
