A New Fast Combination Method of Conflict Evidences Based on Model Modification
In the belief function theory, the combination of highly conflicting evidences is a research focus,and the key lies in both the rationality and timeliness of combination method.This paper analyzes deeply the existing strategy of model modification, and putsforward a new rapid evidence synthesis method based on model modification. The average evidence ofweighted combination on mean evidence isfirstly given, then fast combination on pignistic transformation can be realized. Thus the BBM accordancewith the principle of proportion redistribution isgot. This method has the advantage of Murphy’s method, and overcomes the large calculation problems at the same time. Comparedwith other methods, the new method is more effective to solve the combinationproblem of highly conflicting evidences, and has fast convergence speed, small computationalcomplexity, and higher practical application value.
