Abstract : Possibilistic networks offer a qualitative approach for modeling epistemic uncertainty. Their practical implementation requires the specification of conditional possibility tables, as in the case of Bayesian networks for probabilities. This paper presents the possibilistic counterparts of the noisy probabilistic connectives and, or, max, min, . . . . Their interest is illustrated on an example taken from a human geography modeling problem. The difference of behaviors in some cases of some possibilistic connectives, with respect to their probabilistic analogs, is discussed in details.
