''A unified representation of conditioning rules for convex capacities''
( 2006, Vol. 4 No.19 )
This paper proposes a unified representation, called the G-updating rule, which includes three conditioning rules as special cases, the naïve Bayes rule, the Dempster-Shafer rule (Shafer(1976)), and the generalized Bayes' updating rule introduced by Dempster(1967) or Fagin and Halpern(1991). It is shown that the G-updating rule constitutes a three-step conditioning, where one of the three rules is applied in each step.
