Abstract
In this paper, provided a solution that evidence are sequentially used in pair aiming at the problem of multi-evidence combination. Several theorems and deductions are presented and proved. The step-by-step combination algorithm mixing the classic Dempster-Shafer evidence combination method and the weighted average method is proposed for combination of severe conflicting evidence. The proposed algorithm has better convergence effectiveness and lesser uncertainty than the algorithms proposed in reference literature.
