Entropy of Credibility Distributions for Fuzzy Variables

  title={Entropy of Credibility Distributions for Fuzzy Variables},
  author={Pingke Li and Baoding Liu},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems},
This paper deals with the degree of uncertainty associated with fuzzy variables. Based on the notion of credibility measure, a definition of entropy is formulated from an information theoretical view and its properties are investigated. Finally, some comments are given on the construction of alternative definitions of entropy and axiomatic characterization.
