Figured out how to use Bayes as a method to combine the beliefs/probabilities to obtain a final significance probability out of the results of several detectors. I had to use different values than the DS ones I had previously calculated, so I spent a while calculating and double-checking the values I needed for Bayes. After that, I did some manual calculations/testing before diving into implementing it in the eventing python script.

Also read a few other other papers regarding different methods of belief fusion, namely the Averaging and Cumulative functions. After talking to Richard, we decided to implement those functions so as to compare the values obtained by each method.

I also read some material on Fuzzy Logic, so I plan on implementing that next.

Modified the eventing script to enable easy addition of different belief fusion methods, since I plan on implementing more methods as I come across them.
