Abstract: In this paper, we investigate an average risk sharing problem, in which the optimal objective function is called an average-inf-convolution. We study the properties of the average-inf-convolution for a general risk measure, and obtain the explicit form of the average-inf-convolution. We also analyze the average risk sharing problems in the classic utility models in behavioral economics. Explicit forms of the average-inf-convolutions are obtained in the expected utility model and in the utility-based shortfall model, respectively. In the rank-dependent expected utility (RDEU) model, we give a lower bound of the average-inf-convolution for the RDEU-based shortfall.
