Numeric Reasoning with Relative Orders of Magnitude

  title={Numeric Reasoning with Relative Orders of Magnitude},
  author={Philippe Dague},
In [Dague, 1993], a formal system ROM(K) involving four relations has been defined to reason with relative orders of magnitude. In this paper, problems of introducing quantitative information and of ensuring validity of the results in IR are tackled. Correspondent overlapping relations are defined in R and all rules of ROM(K) are transposed to R. The obtained system ROM(R) depends on two independent numbers which may be freely chosen for each application. Unlike other proposed systems, a sound… CONTINUE READING
