Titel:
Non-Monotonic Reasoning on Probability Models: Indifference,Independence &MaxEnt 
Abstract:
Through completing an underspecified probability model, Maximum Entropy (MaxEnt) supports non-monotonic inferences. Some major aspects of how this is done by MaxEnt can be understood from the background of two principles of rational decision: the concept of Indifference and the concept of Independence. In a formal specification MaxEnt can be viewed as (conservative) extension of these principles; so these principles shed light on the `magical' decisions of MaxEnt. But the other direction is tru...    »
