The actions of any cognitive agent are based on a set of concepts and beliefs. Therefore, any change in that agent's actions or behavior will occur as a consequence of revision in an element of the agent's belief network. Thus, planning for the cognitive agents requires an understanding of that agent's belief network. In the past, investigating the belief network of cognitive agents was almost impossible due to the large number of their belief networks, but the modern computational approaches have made it an accessible goal. On the other hand, belief revision itself is being widely used in different fields of study namely cognitive science, psychology, philosophy, logic, artificial intelligence, and cimputational science. The widespread attention to belief revision is because of its application in areas pertaining to human life. Hence, computational approach in social science and belief revision have become the center of attention for scientists, corporations and even politicians because of its vast application in various areas of our life.
