Possibility theory is a mathema)cal theory for dealing with certain types of uncertainty and is an alterna)ve to probability theory ... when first introduced possibility was an extension of the theory of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic, others added to this a proposed min/max algebra to describe degrees of poten)al surprise.

Formalization of possibility

For simplicity, assume that the universe of discourse is a finite set (Ω), and assume that all subsets are measurable. A distribution of possibility is a func)on such that: It follows that, like probability, the possibility measure on finite set is determined by its behavior in singletons (unit X): provided U is finite or infinite.

Axiom 1 can be interpreted as the assump)on that Ω is an exhaus)ve descrip)on of future states of the world,

because it means that no belief weight is given to elements outside Ω.

Axiom 2 could be interpreted as the assump)on that the evidence from which possibilities are constructed, is free of any contradic)on. Technically, it implies that there is at least one element in Ω with possibility 1.

Axiom 3 corresponds to the addivity axiom in probabili)es. However there is an important practical difference. Possibility theory is computa)onally more convenient because Axioms 1–3 imply

Because one can know the possibility of the union from the possibility of each component, it can be said that possibility is composi)onal with respect to the union operator. Note however that it is not composi)onal with respect to the intersec)on operator. Generally:

When Ω is not finite, Axiom 3 can be replaced for all index sets, if the subset variables, are pairwise disjoint.

Necessity

Whereas probability theory uses a single number, the probability, to describe how likely an event is to occur, possibility theory uses two concepts, the possibility and the necessity of the event. For any event X, the necessity measure is defined by the complement of the elements of Ω that do not belong to axiom 3.

Note that contrary to probability theory, possibility is not self-dual. For any event, we only have the inequality: However, the following duality rule holds:

For any event, possibility = / < 1 but > 0, or necessity = 0

Accordingly, beliefs about an event can be represented by a number and a bit. ... Interpretations ...

variable Z is necessary, true. It implies possibility is 1.

variable Z is necessary, and false. It implies possibility is 0.

variable Z is necessary, impossible. It implies possibility is 0.

variable Z is necessary, possible. It implies possibility is 0 - 1.

variable Z is unnecessary, true. It implies possibility is <1 (1 – drag of unnecessary V Z)

- 3. Possibility theory is a mathematical theory for dealing with certain types of uncertainty and is an alternative to probability theory … when first introduced possibility was an extension of the theory of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic, others added to this a proposed min/max algebra to describe degrees of potential surprise. Formalization of possibility For simplicity, assume that the universe of discourse is a finite set (Ω), and assume that all subsets are measurable. A distribution of possibility is a function such that: It follows that, like probability, the possibility measure on finite set is determined by its behavior in singletons (unit X): provided U is finite or infinite. Axiom 1 can be interpreted as the assumption that Ω is an exhaustive description of future states of the world, because it means that no belief weight is given to elements outside Ω. Axiom 2 could be interpreted as the assumption that the evidence from which possibilities are constructed, is free of any contradiction. Technically, it implies that there is at least one element in Ω with possibility 1. Axiom 3 corresponds to the additivity axiom in probabilities. However there is an important practical difference. Possibility theory is computationally more convenient because Axioms 1–3 imply Because one can know the possibility of the union from the possibility of each component, it can be said that possibility is compositional with respect to the union operator. Note however that it is not compositional with respect to the intersection operator. Generally: When Ω is not finite, Axiom 3 can be replaced for all index sets, if the subset variables, are pairwise disjoint. Necessity Whereas probability theory uses a single number, the probability, to describe how likely an event is to occur, possibility theory uses two concepts, the possibility and the necessity of the event. For any event X, the necessity measure is defined by the complement of the elements of Ω that do not belong to axiom 3. Note that contrary to probability theory, possibility is not self-dual. For any event, we only have the inequality: However, the following duality rule holds: For any event, either possibility = / < 1 but > 0, or necessity = 0
- 4. Accordingly, beliefs about an event can be represented by a number and a bit. … Interpretations … variable Z is necessary, true. It implies possibility is 1. variable Z is necessary, and false. It implies possibility is 0. variable Z is necessary, impossible. It implies possibility is 0. variable Z is necessary, possible. It implies possibility is 0 - 1. variable Z is unnecessary, true. It implies possibility is <1 (1 – drag of unnecessary V Z) Note that unlike possibility, fuzzy logic is compositional with respect to both the union and the intersection operator. The relationship with fuzzy theory can be explained with the following classical example. Fuzzy logic: When a bottle is half full, it can be said that the level of truth of the proposition "The bottle is full" is 0.5. The word "full" is seen as a fuzzy predicate describing the amount of liquid in the bottle. Possibility theory: There is one bottle, either completely full or totally empty. The proposition "the possibility level that the bottle is full is 0.5" describes a degree of belief. One way to interpret 0.5 in that proposition is to define its meaning as: I am ready to bet that it's empty as long as the odds are even (1:1) or better, and I would not bet at any rate that it's full. Possibility theory as an imprecise probability theory: There is an extensive formal correspondence between probability and possibility theories, where the addition operator corresponds to the maximum operator. The operators of possibility theory can be seen as a hyper-cautious version of the operators of the transferable belief model, a modern development of the theory of evidence. Possibility can be seen as an upper probability: any possibility distribution defines a unique set of admissible probability distributions by This allows one to study possibility theory using the tools of imprecise probabilities. Necessity logic: We call generalized possibility every function satisfying Axiom 1 and Axiom 3. We call generalized necessity the dual of a generalized possibility. The generalized necessities are related with a very simple and interesting fuzzy logic we call necessity logic. In the deduction apparatus of necessity logic the logical axioms are the usual classical tautologies. Also, there is only a fuzzy inference rule extending the usual Modus Ponens. Such a rule says that if α and α → β are proved at degree λ and μ, respectively, then we can assert β at degree min {λ,μ}. It is easy to see that the theories of such a logic are the generalized necessities and that the completely consistent theories coincide with the necessities.
- 5. An ‘exploratory’ algorithm (as used here) in context … As a step-by-step procedure … this is by definition, outside the box … There is a process and protocol to the paradigm, there is also much extrapolation and assimilation from existing bioinformation, and a lot of the same as fill in the gap activity on the back end as well … creativity and time are needed, for example, comparing a vs b vs c (insert area or variable, scientific process, known biologics, etc.) calculations, data processing, analysis, play in & out of the end point collation theoretical, or automated reasoning, is a tool for formulation and modeling real modeling requires integration of many variables and overlay systems testing and adjusting, modifying, improving in real time, important … Etc, etc, etc, etc, ….. As used here … it is informal, grossly accurate at best, allows information to be derived from information, but any such results, interpretations, conclusions, must be closely scrutinized, challenged. The confounders, variables known and unknown, requirement for mixing both hard and real data with estimates of some data sets as indicated, and a list of qualifiers and caveats that is exponential are considerations ….
- 6. ‘Exploratory’ Algorithm Building Blocks (ABCs) … for Discussion 6 areas introduced here … 1 Biologic Area of Interest, Topic around which Modeling Occurs … 2-5: +/-/x/div/”Other” manipulations, applied to assigned values … 2&3 Common and / or Derived Variables (routine, simple, logical) 4&5 Variable X factors, and / or Modifiers … etc, etc. 6 Adjusted up / down (tweeked) for random events, caveats, negatives or challenges, confounders … must include all examples thought to be reasonable, and to a reasonable degree … to get a more realistic, accurate model (conservative approach)
- 7. Units (for discussion) – routine / common vs … Value X Units Common: Distance (base - metric) – Picro, Nano, Micro, Milli, etc. Weight (base – metric) – Picro, Nano, Micro, Milli, Gram, kilogram Speed (base – metric / velocity per Unit of Time) – Kilometer, Meter, Milli, Micron, Nano) Energy, Heat, Kinetic Motion … Volume (base – metric) Liter, ml, microL, nanoL (simple calculation of dV/T) Example of a “Unit” in context, for comparison: Bits and Bytes: ISQ symbols for the bit and byte are bit and B. In the context of data rate units, one byte consists of 8 bits, and is synonymous with the unit octet. The abbreviation bps is often used to mean bit/s, so that when a 1 Mbps connection is advertised, it usually means that the maximum achievable bandwidth is 1 Mbit/s (one million bits per second), which is 0.125 MB/s (megabyte per second), or about 0.1192 MiB/s (mebibyte per second). The IEEE uses the symbol b for bit. Extracting meaning, to the Unit ….”maximum achievable bandwidth is 1 Mbit/s (one million bits per second), which is 0.125 MB/s (megabyte per second), or about 0.1192 MiB/s (mebibyte per second).”
- 8. Units for Value X, a Pseudo-Tangible Value, for Modeling only Too complex, too fuzzy, to abstract to define here … Unit is arbitrary … comprehensive quality complex and diverse, but logical and common sense more often than not many variables, most values are dynamic parameters or derivations from parameters useful as indicated conceptual, abstract, adapted … as indicated adapted measures, methodology, and units for variables as indicated, etc. Real and logical and theoretical based, all at the same time ~ mixed and matched As used here, it could not be a real world value … although that approach could be used … the sub models could not come to together without a Unit X being created from combining all, adding new values, both pseudo and space filling (i.e. dark matter)
