About Relation between the Measure of Conflict and Decreasing of Ignorance in Theory of Evidence
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 relationships between the measure of conflict and the index of decreasing of ignorance in the case of different types of evidences and the application of different combining rules were investigated.
