This report summarizes a variety of the most useful and commonly applied methods for obtaining Dempster-Shafer structures, and their mathematical kin probability boxes, from empirical information orâ€¦ (More)

One of the reasons why fuzzy methodology is successful is that fuzzy systems are universal approximators, i.e., that we can approximate an arbitrary continuous function within any given accuracy by aâ€¦ (More)

In the last several years the computational complexity of classical planning and HTN planning have been studied. But in both cases it is assumed that the planner has complete knowledge about the initâ€¦ (More)

Security games provide a framework for allocating limited security resources in adversarial domains, and are currently used in deployed systems for LAX, the Federal Air Marshals, and the U.S. Coastâ€¦ (More)

Traditional decision theory assumes that for every two alternatives, people always make the same (deterministic) choice. In practice, peopleâ€™s choices are often probabilistic, especially for similarâ€¦ (More)

Fuzzy control is a very successful way to transform the expertâ€™s knowledge of the type â€œif the velocity is big and the distance from the object is small, hit the brakes and decelerate as fast asâ€¦ (More)

We prove that it is NP-hard to compute the exact componentwise bounds on solutions of all the linear systems which can be obtained from a given linear system with a nonsingular matrix by perturbingâ€¦ (More)

It is well-known that t-norms are widely applicable in certain models, which describe human reasoning about uncertainty, and that for different applications, different t-norms fit better. Thus, givenâ€¦ (More)
