Defaults and Infinitesimals: Defeasible Inference by Nonarchimedean Entropy-Maximization
We develop a new semantics for defeasible inference based on extended probability measures allowed to take infinitesimal values, on the interpretation of defaults as generalized conditional probability constraints and on a preferred-model implementation of entropy maximization.
Keywords: Default reasoning, maximum entropy, nonstandard probability.
