Abstract

The Shannon entropy measures conflict in probabilistic evidence. Evidence Theory also presents information that is inherently conflicting. Uncertainty measures for conflict in Evidence Theory include aggregate uncertainty, dissonance, confusion, discord, granularity and strife. This paper compares and critiques the properties of these measures.
