A Clustering-Based Evidence Reasoning Method

Authors: Xinde Li, Fengyu Wang

Aiming at the counterintuitive phenomena of the Dempster–Shafer method in combining the highly conflictive evidences, a combination method of evidences based on the clustering analysis is proposed in this paper. At first, the cause of conflicts is disclosed from the point of view of the internal and external contradiction. Andthen,a new similarity measure based on it is proposed by comprehensively considering the Pignistic distance and the sequence according to the size of the basic belief assignments over focal elements.
