Fuzzy information and combinatorial inequalities

Arthur Ramer


Properties of information measures both in fuzzy theory and in the theory of evidence are closely related to combinatorial identities and inequalities. It is demonstrated how study of information functions leads to new combinatorial results. Three cases are presented: metric property of fuzzy information distance, approximations of continuous fuzzy information, maximum for a combined Dempster-Shafer evidence measure.
