abstract (eng):

In evidence theory various rules were proposed to define conditional beliefs and/or plausibilities (or basic assignments). However, there exist no generally accepted criteria along which these rules can be compared. In this paper we concentrate to three of them (Dempster's conditioning rule, focusing and the approach based on lower and upper envelopes of sets of conditional probabilities) to study their mutual relationship. A new conditional rule for variables is presented afterwards and its correctness is proven.
