Let c: VxV [right arrow] [0, i] be the attribute value contradiction (dissimilarity) degree function (that we introduce now for the first time) between any two attribute values [v.sub.1] and [v.sub.2], denoted by
c([v.sub.1], [v.sub.2]) = 0, the contradiction degree between the same attribute values is zero;

Different experts express their subjective preference information on attributes in the following formats, i.e., preference orderings, linguistic terms, interval numbers, and inequality constraints among the attribute weights, as stated in Table 1.
In this paper, the numerical attributes are divided into three categories [34]: (1) nominal attribute, it refers to only a set of numerical symbols, such as ID card number, which does not have a meaningful order, and is not quantitative; (2) ordinal attribute, its possible values have the meaningful orders or ranking, but the difference between successive is unknown; (3) general numerical attribute, its possible values are measurable, such as age and height.
The calculation method of e_ij can be referred to (3), where n is the number of data tuple and count(A = a_i) is the count of value a J which appeared in the A attribute.

Indices and criteria for risk assessment of water inrush are based on the statistical information about geology in karst tunnels, and several influencing factors of water inrush are selected as the attribute evaluation indices.
So, when the attribute recognition model is applied to comprehensive risk evaluation of water inrush, the evaluation results of attribute recognition model based on linear measure function often have relatively large errors.
