### Abstract

The reexamination of Dempster's formulation of upper and lower probabilities in terms of inverse mappings and probability theory was discussed. Dempster determined that for an arbitary event, the best we could do was to determine an upper and lower probability. He also concluded that the true probability remains bounded by these two vales. The reinterpretation of the formulation by Shafer in terms of evidence theory was also discussed.
