Evidence Against Evidence Theory (?!)


STRESZCZENIE This paper is concerned with the apparent greatest weakness of the Mathematical Theory of Evidence (MTE) of Shafer [27], which has been strongly criticized by Wasserman [37] the relationship to frequencies. Weaknesses of various proposals of probabilistic interpretation of MTE belief functions are demonstrated. A new frequency-based interpretation is presented overcoming various drawbacks of earlier interpretations.
