Parainconsistency of credibility-based belief states

Anna Gomolińska



In our approach credibility of information plays an important role in modeling of both belief state and belief change [4]. It turns out that the credibility-based consequence operators used to define the notion of belief state tolerate inconsistency under some conditions.
