A new singular property of the unnormalized Dempster’s rule among uninorm-based combination rules

F. Pichon, T. Denoeux.

A new family of rules of combination for belief functions was recently introduced. It is based on uninorms and an equivalent representation of a belief function known as the weight function. The unnormalized Dempster’s rule was notably shown to be the least committed rule in this family. This paper shows another interesting property of this rule in this family: it is the only one for which marginalization is distributive over the combination.
