Bayesian Model Selection in Statistical Construction of Justification

Bayesian inference characterizing argument-based reasoning addresses this issue by calculating the posterior distribution over attack relations given acceptability statuses of arguments. This paper discusses the use of Bayesian model selection where graph-theoretic properties impose restrictions on the graphic structure of attack relations.
