Abstract

Variation independence of functions is a simple natural ’irrelevance’ property arising in a number of applications in Artificial Intelligence and Statistics. We show how it can be alternatively expressed in terms of two other representations of the same underlying structure: equivalence relations and $\tau$ -fields.
