Dear group members,

I would like to get a clear explanation of the difference between possiblity
measure and probability measure. In other words, I would like to know the
answer to the question: "What possibility can do that probability cannot".

This is not an attempt to argue against fuzzy logic. I have just never found
a good explanation.

Thanx

Jean-Philippe
