On Axiomatization of Probabilistic Conditional Independencies
Michael Wong, Z. Wang
This paper studies the connection between probabilistic conditional independence in uncertain reasoning and data dependency in relational databases. As a demonstration of the usefulness of this preliminary investigation, an alternate proof is presented for refuting the conjecture suggested by Pearl and Paz that probabilistic conditional independencies have a complete axiomatization.
