Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

A new measure of uncertainty for evidence theory is presented. The measure of granularity is similar in form to the Shannon entropy. It also has connections to the Hartley measure and the granularity measure of rough set theory.
