Nonmonotonic Reasoning via Possibility Theory
Ronald Yager
We introduce the operation of possibility qualification and show how. this modal-like operator can be used to represent "typical" or default knowledge in a theory of nonmonotonic reasoning. We investigate the representational power of this approach by looking at a number of prototypical problems from the nonmonotonic reasoning literature. In particular we look at the so called Yale shooting problem and its relation to priority in default reasoning.
