Item description for Uncertainty-Based Information: Elements of Generalized Information Theory (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing) by George J. Klir...
The book is an overview of the development of basic ideas and mathematical results regarding measures and principles of uncertainty-based information formalized within the framework of classical set theory, probability theory, fuzzy set theory, possibility theory, and the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence. The book contains many new results, which had until now not been available in a single monograph. The book is very useful for researchers, but it can also be used as a graduate text.
