P. Lachout, M. Studeny and J. Sindelar: On set-valued measures. Informatica 4 (1993), n. 1-2, pp. 21-44.

The concept of a set-valued measure is introduced and illustrated by examples. Its significance for a new non-standard approach in artificial intelligence is explained. Then, the construction of factorization of these measures is mentioned, a special class of sigma-quasiatomic set-valued measures is defined and the corresponding characterization theorem is proved. This class involves set-valued measures ranging in a countable set which were used in modelling uncertainty in artificial intelligence. It enables to answer one question arising in connection with this application.
