ualitative Methods PDF/EPUB ² imperfect information The advantage of ualitative methods is that they do not reuire precise numerical information Instead they work with abstractions such as Methods for Reasoning MOBI ☆ interval values and information about how values change The author does not invent completely new methods for reasoning under uncertainty but provides the means to create ualitative versions of existing methods To illustrate this he develops ualitative versions of probability theory possibility theory and the Dempster Shafer theory of evidenceAccording to Parsons these theories are best considered complementary rather than exclusive Thus the book supports the contention that rather than search for the one best method to handle all imperfect information one should use whichever method best fits the problem This approach leads naturally to the use of several different methods in the solution of a single problem and to the complexity of integrating the results problem to which ualitative methods provide a solution.
