Representing preferences in the possibilistic setting

04271.KaciSouhila.Paper.406.pdf (0.4 MB)


The accurate and easy representation of users' preferences in information
engineering systems becomes an important issue. Possibility theory provides a
generic framework for the qualitative representation of preferences, where
several equivalent information formats co- exist (distribution, logical bases,
conditionals, graphical networks). Moreover, a bipolar representation
distinguishing between positive and negative preferences has been developed in
this setting. The paper offers a comprehensive survey of these representation
