''Equivalence of the Dempster-Shafer rule and the maximum likelihood rule implies convexity''
( 2005, Vol. 4 No.10 )
It is known that if a capacity is convex then the Dempster-Shafer rule for the capacity is equivalent to the maximum likelihood rule for the core of the capacity. This paper shows that the converse is also true that is, a capacity must be convex if these two rules are equivalent.
