Paper Abstract

In this paper, I discuss the basic notions of the Dempster Shafer theory. Using a simple engineering example, I highlight sources of confusion in the Dempster Shafer literature, and some questions that arise in the course of applying the Dempster Shafer algorithm. Finally, I discuss the measure theoretic foundation that reveals the intimate connections between the Dempster Shafer theory and Probability theory.
