In this paper, we will discuss a problem of deduction with uncertainty that has been dealt with by various diagnostic expert systems. Our two main points are as follows. First, we will propose a mathematical framework of deductive reasoning with uncertainty. Our framework will clarify that a subject of the reasoning is a calculation of conditional probabilities. Second, we will establish a new reasoning method. Our deduction algorithm can compute the conditional probabilities precisely. To put it the other way around, the result minimizes a divergence.
