Epistemic independence in numerical possibility theory

Numerical possibility measures can be interpreted as systems of upper betting rates for events. As such, they have a special part in the unifying behavioural theory of imprecise probabilities, proposed by Walley. On this interpretation, they should arguably satisfy certain rationality, or consistency, requirements, such as avoiding sure loss and coherence. Using a version of Walley’s notion of epistemic independence suitable for possibility measures, we study in detail what these rationality… CONTINUE READING
