Properties of measures of information in evidence and possibility theories. (English) Zbl 0633.94009
In this paper it is investigated the additivity and monotonicity properties of different measures of information which have been recently introduced in the framework of Shafer’s evidence theory. The existence of these properties shows that it is possible to extend information theory in a nice way beyond its probabilistic setting.
