  1. 1. Indiscernibility and Vagueness in Spatial Information Systems

    Author : Karim Oukbir; KTH; []
    Keywords : indiscernibility; vagueness; rough sets; fuzzy sets; information systems;

    Abstract : We investigate the use of the concept of indiscernibilityand vagueness in spatial information systems. To representindiscernibility and vagueness we use rough sets, respectivelyfuzzy sets. We introduce a theoretical model to supportapproximate queries in information systems and we show howthose queries can be used to perform uncertain classi. READ MORE

  2. 2. Extensions in Flux : An Essay on Vagueness and Context Sensitivity

    Author : Jonas Åkerman; Peter Pagin; Diana Raffman; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; vagueness; context sensitivity; contextualism; weak tolerance; sorites paradox; forced march; equivocation; indexicals; Fara; Raffman; Shapiro; Soames; Theoretical philosophy; Teoretisk filosofi; Theoretical Philosophy; teoretisk filosofi;

    Abstract : The extensions of vague predicates like ‘is bald’, ‘is tall’, and ‘is a heap’ apparently lack sharp boundaries, and this makes such predicates susceptible to soritical reasoning, i.e. reasoning that leads to some version of the notorious sorites paradox. READ MORE

  3. 3. Comparing values : essays on comparability, transitivity, and vagueness

    Author : Nicolas Espinoza; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Filosofi; Philosophy;

    Abstract : The primary aim of this thesis is to examine some of the arguments that have been leveled against the idea that all value bearing entities are comparable. A secondary aim is to investigate some putative properties of the relation ‘better than', especially transitivity and (to some degree) vagueness. READ MORE

  4. 4. How It All Relates : Exploring the Space of Value Comparisons

    Author : Henrik Andersson; Praktisk filosofi; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; värderelationer; vaghet; paritet; ojämförbarhet; värdejämförelser; svåra jämförelser; transitivitet; kollapsprincipen; Value relations; vagueness; parity; incomparability; incommensurability; indeterminacy; value comparisons; hard cases of comparison; transitivity; the collapsing principle;

    Abstract : This thesis explores whether the three standard value relations, “better than”, “worse than” and “equally as good”, exhaust the possibilities in which things can relate with respect to their value. Or more precisely, whether there are examples in which one of these relations is not instantiated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Computational decision analysis

    Author : Mats Danielson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a new framework and a tool for decisionmaking using uncertan information. It is called DELTA after itsprimary decision rule. The objective is to present a method forevaluating choices under uncertainty. READ MORE
