Overview

Reasoning under uncertainty, that is, making judgments with only partial knowledge, is a major theme in artificial intelligence. Professor Paris provides here an introduction to the mathematical foundations of the subject. The author presents the key results on the subject, and formalizes within a unified framework the main contemporary approaches and assumptions. He concentrates on giving clear mathematical formulations, analyses, justifications, and consequences of the main theories about uncertain reasoning.
