Set Approximation in Incomplete Data

Renpu Li

The problem of set approximation in incomplete data is addressed. Different with complete data where the upper/lower approximation of an object set is certain and can be given by one set, for incomplete data upper/lower approximation of a set is uncertain and needs to be bracketed by a set pair. From the completion view of incomplete data, the semantic interpretations of four boundaries used to approximate a set in incomplete data are given. It is illustrated that existing definitions based on tolerance class or covering are not enough to describe precisely the set approximation in incomplete data. Based on a concept of interval granule, new methods are presented for incomplete data to compute the four approximation boundaries of a set. This study provides a new view of granular computing on set approximation in incomplete data and is helpful for computing the uncertainty of a set more accurately.
