The Transferable Belief Model
 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
, 1994
"... We describe the transferable belief model, a model for representing quantified beliefs based on belief functions. Beliefs can be held at two levels: (1) a credal level where beliefs are entertained and quantified by belief functions, (2) a pignistic level where beliefs can be used to make decisions ..."

Verb Semantics And Lexical Selection
, 1994
"... ... structure. As Levin has addressed (Levin 1985), the decomposition of verbs is proposed for the purposes of accounting for systematic semanticsyntactic correspondences. This results in a series of problems for MT systems: inflexible verb sense definitions; difficulty in handling metaphor and new ..."

Fusion, Propagation, and Structuring in Belief Networks
 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
, 1986
"... Belief networks are directed acyclic graphs in which the nodes represent propositions (or variables), the arcs signify direct dependencies between the linked propositions, and the strengths of these dependencies are quantified by conditional probabilities. A network of this sort can be used to repre ..."

Nelson’s Strong Negation, Safe Beliefs and the Answer Set Semantics
"... Abstract In this paper we consider an extension of the answer set semantics allowing arbitrary use of strong negation. We prove that the strong negation extension of any intermediate logic provides a suitable basis for reasoning under the answer set semantics. We propose two new notions of equivalen ..."

A solution to Plato’s problem: The latent semantic analysis theory of acquisition, induction, and representation of knowledge
 PSYCHOLOGICAL REVIEW
, 1997
"... How do people know as much as they do with as little information as they get? The problem takes many forms; learning vocabulary from text is an especially dramatic and convenient case for research. A new general theory of acquired similarity and knowledge representation, latent semantic analysis (LS ..."

Bilattices and the Semantics of Logic Programming
, 1989
"... Bilattices, due to M. Ginsberg, are a family of truth value spaces that allow elegantly for missing or conflicting information. The simplest example is Belnap's fourvalued logic, based on classical twovalued logic. Among other examples are those based on finite manyvalued logics, and on prob ..."

, and on probabilistic valued logic. A fixed point semantics is developed for logic programming, allowing any bilattice as the space of truth values. The mathematics is little more complex than in the classical twovalued setting, but the result provides a natural semantics for distributed logic programs, including
A Bayesian method for the induction of probabilistic networks from data

Selfdiscrepancy: A theory relating self and affect
 Psychological Review
, 1987
"... This article presents a theory of how different types of discrepancies between selfstate representations are related to different kinds of emotional vulnerabilities. One domain of the self (actual; ideal; ought) and one standpoint on the self (own; significant other) constitute each type of selfs ..."

Noise Trader Risk in Financial Markets
 Jolurnial of Political Economy

"... We present a simple overlapping generations model of an asset market in which irrational noise traders with erroneous stochastic beliefs both affect prices and earn higher expected returns. The unpredictability of noise traders ’ beliefs creates a risk in the price of the asset that deters rational ..."
