Paper Abstract

In this paper, the conjunctive and disjunctive combination rules of evidence, namely, the Dempster-Shafer' s (D-S) combination rule, the Yager's combination rule, the Dubois and Prade's (D-P) combination rule, the DSm's combination rule and the disjunctive combination rule, are studied for the two independent sources of information. The properties of each combination rule of evidence are discussed in detail, such as the role of evidence of each source of information in the combination judgment, the comparison of the combination judgment belief and ignorance of each combination rule, the treatment of conflict judgments given by the two sources of information, and the applications of combination rules. Zadeh' s example is included in the paper to evaluate the performance as well as efficiency of each combination rule of evidence for the conflict judgments given by the two sources of information.
