Construction of Fuzzy Measures over Product Spaces
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we study the problem of constructing a fuzzy measure over a product space when fuzzy measures over the marginal spaces are available. We propose a definition of independence of fuzzy measures and introduce different ways of constructing product measures, analyzing their properties. We derive bounds for the measure on the product space and show that it is possible to construct a single product measure when the marginal measures are capacities of order 2. We also study the combination of real functions over the marginal spaces in order to produce a joint function over the product space, compatible with the concept of marginalization, paving the way for the definition of statistical indices based on fuzzy measures.
