Generalized Union and Project Operations for Pooling Uncertain and Imprecise Information

  title={Generalized Union and Project Operations for Pooling Uncertain and Imprecise Information},
  author={David A. Bell and Jiwen Guan and Suk Kyoon Lee},
  journal={Data Knowl. Eng.},
We have previously proposed an extended relational data model with the objective of supporting uncertain information in a consistent and coherent manner. The model, which can represent both uncertainty and imprecision in data, is based on the Dempster-Shafer (D-S) theory of evidence, and it uses bel and pls functions of the theory, with their definitions extended somewhat for this purpose. Relational operations such as Select, Cartesian Product, Join, Project, Intersect, and Union have… CONTINUE READING
