Respecting Relevance in Belief Change (joint work with George Kourousias )

  • Speaker:   Prof  David Makinson  (King's College London)
  • Host:   Uli Sattler

Abstract
In this talk we look at the question: to what extent do the formal operations of AGM belief change respect criteria of relevance? A natural (but also debateable) criterion was proposed in 1999 by Rohit Parikh, who also observed that the AGM model does not always respect it. We discuss the pros and cons of this criterion, and explain how the AGM account may be refined, if we so desire, so that it is always respected.
