17 May 2016 Dempster-Shafer information measures in category theory
Author Affiliations +
In the Dempster Shafer context, one can construct new types of information measures based on belief and plausibility functions. These measures differ from those in Shannon’s theory because, in his theory, information measures are based on probability functions. Other types of information measures were discovered by Kampe de Feriet and his colleagues in the French and Italian schools of mathematics. The objective of this paper is to construct a new category of information. I use category theory to construct a general setting in which the various types of information measures are special cases.
