In the reduction of problems with uncertainty, combination relation called COMB becomes important as well as AND/OR relations. Dempster & Shafer's theory provides a rational inference mechanism for the COMB relation. Knowledge often manifests fuzziness as well as uncertainty. To construct expert systems utilizing such knowledge, Dempster & Shafer's theory is extended in two ways to include fuzzy subset and fuzzy certainty.
