abstract (eng):

A possibilistic marginal problem is introduced in a way analogous to probabilistic framework, to address the question of whether or not a common extension exists for a given set of marginal distributions. Similarities and differences between possibilistic and probabilstic marginal problems are demonstrated, concerning necessary and sufficient conditions and sets of solutions. Finally, the operators of composition is introduced and we show howto use them for finding T-product extension.
