Convolution of Fuzzyness and Probability

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 177)


One way for convolving the two essential dimensions, statistic al and semantical, of the informativity of descriptions is outlined by present paper. In order to show the usefulness of taking into account the semantical dimension in addition to that statistical, the reported argumentation is developed by following a model in which informativ ty concerns diagnostic flows.
