A Discussion on Simple Support Functions

Full Text PDF


Prediction about each and every incident happening in our daily life is impossible. But we can predict about some incidents. Probability is most helpful tool in predicting about outcomes or conclusions of such incidents. Such incidents happened in our life, always follow some known or unknown statistical probability distribution which may consist of simple or complicated probability density function. Therefore with help of probability distributions, we get some blurred idea about the functioning of incidents happening in our life. Using some commonly used probability distributions, we obtain conclusions which are helpful in decision making. Support functions viz. simple support functions are very useful in decision making. In this paper, we quote some results and applications regarding simple support function based on probability transformations.
