Conditional Events and Fuzzy Conditional Events Viewed from a Product Probability Space Perspective

  • I. R. Goodman
Part of the Theory and Decision Library book series (TDLD, volume 16)


This paper first provides a brief review of the product space approach to conditional event algebra and the one-point random set coverage function representation of fuzzy sets followed by a natural extension to a fuzzy set structure.
