A similarity measure between basic belief assignments

Abstract : A similarity measure between the focal elements used on a distance function of two basic belief assignments in the Theory of Evidence is presented, making way for the application of classical classification algorithms in this field. The properties of this measure are particular to its context, considering the characteristics of the focal elements, their relationship with each other and their proximity to the vacuous belief function that represents the state of total ignorance.
