From conditional probability to the logic of doxastic actions

  title={From conditional probability to the logic of doxastic actions},
  author={Alexandru Baltag and Sonja Smets},
We investigate the discrete (finite) case of the Popper-Renyi theory of conditional probability, introducing discrete conditional probabilistic models for knowledge and conditional belief, and comparing them with the more standard plausibility models. We also consider a related notion, that of safe belief, which is a weak (nonnegatively introspective) type of "knowledge". We develop a probabilistic version of this concept ("degree of safety") and we analyze its role in games. We completely… CONTINUE READING
