Abstract
This report presents a concise and complete theory of convex sets of distributions, which extends and unifies previous approaches. Lower expectations and convex sets of probability distributions are derived from axioms of preference; concepts of conditionalization, independence and conditional independence are defined based on convex sets of distributions.
