abstract (eng):

Iterative Proportional Fitting Procedure is commonly used in probability theory for construction of a joint probability distribution from a system of its marginals. A similar idea can be used in case of belief functions thanks to special operators of composition defined in this framework. In this paper, a formerly designed IPF procedure is further studied. We propose a modification of composition operator (for the purpose of the procedure), compare the behavior of the modified procedure with the previous one and prove its convergence.\n
