On internal conflict as an external conflict of a decomposition of evidence
Conflictness is an important a priori characteristic of combining rules in the belief functions theory. A new approach to the estimation of internal conflict offered in this article. This approach is based on the idea of decomposition of the initial body of evidence on the set of bodies of evidence by means of some combining rule. Then the (external) conflict of this set of beliefs is estimated. The dependence of change of internal conflict from the choice of the combining rules is analyzed in this study.

This paper is devoted to the study of estimation of internal conflict of evidence in the framework of belief functions theory. The decomposition approach, which was proposed early by the author, will be considered with this purpose. The establishment of some properties of this conflict measure is a main result of this paper. In particular, ...

The conflict measure and index of decreasing of igno-rance in frame of Dempster-Shafer theory are intro-duced. Those functionals are analyzed on the bodies of evidences of special type. It is shown that the great correlation between the bodies of evidence is a sufficient condition of decreasing of ignorance after the applying of combining rule. The ...

Decompositional approach for evaluation of internal conflict in the framework of the evidence theory
, Нечеткие системы и мягкие вычисления 2020 Vol. 15 No. 1 P. 43-63
The concept of conflict is one of the central in the belief functions theory. There are differences between external and internal conflicts. A new method for estimating the internal conflict is proposed and studied in this paper. This method assumes that the original body of evidence was derived from simpler evidence using some combining rule. ...

The analysis results of information inconsistency within belief function theory (the Dempster–Shafer theory of evidence) are reviewed. This theory has been intensively developing over the past 10–15 years. Part I of the survey considers the measure of external conflict between bodies of evidence. The concepts of conflict and non-conflict bodies of evidence and the basic ...

The index of decreasing of ignorance after applying of combination rules is introduced and studied in the work within the frame of Dempster-Shafer theory. This index is analysed for some special sets (bodies) of evidence. It is shown that a strong correlation between bodies of evidence is a sufficient condition to decrease of ignorance after applying of combination rules. In ...

The article is dedicated to the method of aggregation of financial analysts’ recommendations in the framework of the evidence theory. This method considered on the example of Russian stock market and the quality of the obtained results was compared with the classical consensus forecast. It is shown that the combination rules, which are widely developed ...

The possibility of using the belief function theory for developing of trading strategies is considered in this paper. An analysis of this approach is given on the data of the Russian stock market. The belief and plausibility functions (and their corresponding bodies of evidence) to the system’s recommendations (buy, sell or hold) are calculated using ...

The conflict measures induced by the conjunctive and disjunctive combining rules are studied in this paper in the framework of evidence theory. The coherence of conflict measures with combining rules is introduced and studied. In addition, the structure of conjunctive and disjunctive conflict measures is studied in the paper. In particular, it is shown that ...

Some general schemes and examples of aggregation of two belief functions into a single belief function are considered in this paper. We find some sufficient conditions of change of ignorance when evidences are combined with the help of various rules. It is shown that combining rules can be regarded as pessimistic or optimistic depending on the ...
