Abstract

We propose an extended relational database model which can model both uncertainty and imprecision in data. This model is based on Dempster-Shafer theory which has become popular in AI asan uncertainty reasoning tool. The definitions of Bel and Pls functions in Dempster-Shafer theory are extended to compute the beliefs of various comparisons (e.g., equality, less than, etc.) between two basic probability assignments. Based on these new definitions of Bel and Pls functions and the Boolean combinations of Bel and Pls values for two events, five relational operators such as Select, Cartesian Product, Join, Projection Intersect, and Union are defined.
