In other terms, the theory of belief functions is taken as an interesting, non-traditional application of probability theory, and the standard methodology of probability theory, and measure theory in general, is applied in order to arrive at some new and perhaps interesting generalizations and results not accessible within the classical combinatorial framework of the theory of belief functions (Dempster-Shafer theory) over finite spaces. The relation to great systems and their theory seems to be very close and should become clear from the first two chapters of the book.
