Stochastic independence in a coherent setting. (English) Zbl 1005.60007
The authors continue their systematic study of coherent assessment of (finitely additive) probability to a family of conditional events. They start with a nice exposition of the concept of coherent assessment and then thoroughly study the stochastic independence in the framework of coherent probability theory. In the de Finetti tradition, conditioning does not exclude events of zero probability but, contrary, it is a crucial feature of the theory.
