In this paper we consider, in the framework of coherence, four different definitions of conjunction among conditional events. In each of these definitions the conjunction is still a conditional event. We first recall the different definitions of conjunction; then, given a coherent probability assessment (x, y) on a family of two conditional events {A|H,B|K}, for each conjunction (A|H)∧(B|K) we determine the (best) lower and upper bounds for the extension z=P[(A|H)∧(B|K)]. We show that, in general, these lower and upper bounds differ from the classical Fréchet-Hoeffding bounds. Moreover, we recall a notion of conjunction studied in recent papers, such that the result of conjunction of two conditional events A|H and B|K is (not a conditional event, but) a suitable conditional random quantity, with values in the interval [0, 1]. Then, we remark that for this conjunction, among other properties, the Fréchet-Hoeffding bounds are preserved.

Abstract

In this paper we consider, in the framework of coherence, four different definitions of conjunction among conditional events. In each of these definitions the conjunction is still a conditional event. We first recall the different definitions of conjunction; then, given a coherent probability assessment (x, y) on a family of two conditional events {A|H,B|K}, for each conjunction (A|H)∧(B|K) we determine the (best) lower and upper bounds for the extension z=P[(A|H)∧(B|K)]. We show that, in general, these lower and upper bounds differ from the classical Fréchet-Hoeffding bounds. Moreover, we recall a notion of conjunction studied in recent papers, such that the result of conjunction of two conditional events A|H and B|K is (not a conditional event, but) a suitable conditional random quantity, with values in the interval [0, 1]. Then, we remark that for this conjunction, among other properties, the Fréchet-Hoeffding bounds are preserved.
