A comparison of approaches to model uncertainty in time intervals

Information systems model parts of reality by representing properties of real-world objects or concepts. As real objects or concepts often have temporal aspects, temporal notions such as time intervals are often represented. However, these may …

Properties of possibilistic string comparison

The problem of detecting coreferent objects of arbitrary complexity is a challenging topic in current research. A possibilistic solution for this problem is to treat it as an uncertain Boolean problem. This means that two objects are either …

A possibilistic approach to string comparison

In this paper, comparison of strings is tackled from a possibilistic point of view. Instead of using the concept of similarity between strings, coreference between strings is adopted. The possibility of coreference is estimated by means of a …
