Liiwii transformations appear when combining coherent sets of desirable gambles; their inverse is used when deriving one coherent set of desirable gambles from another.
Formerly, he has been the President of SIPTA, the Society for Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications, co-chaired the conferences ISIPTA '03 and '07, and started the SIPTA schools in imprecise probability. He is currently the Area Editor for Imprecise Probability for the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning. His interests include probabilistic graphical models (such as Bayesian and credal networks, or influence diagrams), data mining and credal classification, statistics and the foundations of imprecise probability.
He is Professor and Dean of the Rutgers Business School—Newark and New Brunswick. He was awarded a PhD in Statistics in 1973 by Princeton University. He is well known for his work in the 1970s and 1980s on the Dempster-Shafer theory, especially for his path-breaking book, A Mathematical Theory of Evidence. , co-authored by Vladimir Vovk and published in 2001. He is a fellow of both the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the American Association for Artificial Intelligence. com Damjan Škulj co-authored Chapter 11 (Stochastic processes).
