On the knowledge structure of multi-solution variables, including quantified statements

  title={On the knowledge structure of multi-solution variables, including quantified statements},
  author={Ronald R. Yager},
  journal={Int. J. Approx. Reasoning},
This article is concerned with the development o f a theory f o r reasoning about variables that can assume multiple solutions. Yager discusses the representation o f three types o f canonical statements: affirmative, disfirmative, and quantified. Measures o f surety and rebuf f are introduced that measure, respectively, the degree to which one is sure that a value occurs and the degree to which one rebuffs its occurrence. By restricting a variable to one solution by way o f a uniquely… CONTINUE READING
