DPL includes a function, prob(), that returns the probability of a state of an event at any point in an analysis when the event is in an unknown state. This function is useful in decision problems in which the probability of an event is itself a major consideration in making decisions. For example, you could use this function to analyze decisions in which the objective is to minimize the probability of a catastrophic event.
The function prob() must occur in an expression in the Decision Tree. DPL will generate an error message if you use prob( ) in the Influence Diagram.
