Propagating belief functions in AND-trees


We describe a simple method for propagating belief functions in AND-trees. We exploit the properties of AND-trees to make our method simpler than the general method discussed by Shenoy and Shafer, and Dempster and Kong. We illustrate our method for aggregation of evidence in a financial audit.
