Systems of logico-probabilistic (LP) reasoning characterize inference from conditional assertions that are interpreted as expressing high conditional probabilities. In previous work, we studied four well known LP systems (namely, systems O, P, Z, and QC), and presented data from computer simulations in an attempt to illustrate the performance of the four systems. These simulations evaluated the four systems in terms of their tendency to license inference to accurate and informative lower… Expand
