  title={Argument Calculus and Networks},
  author={Adnan Darwiche},
A major reason behind the success of prob­ ability calculus is that it possesses an um­ ber of valuable tools, which are based on the notion of probabilistic indepen­ dence. In this paper, I identify a no­ tion of logical independence that makes some of these tools available to a class of propositional databases, called argument databases. Specifi cally, I suggest a graph­ ical representation of argument databases, called argument networks, which resemble Bayesian networks. I also suggest an al… CONTINUE READING
