A class of incomplete and ambiguity averse preferences

Leandro Nascimento and Gil Riella

Journal of Economic Theory, 2011, vol. 146, issue 2, 728-750

Abstract: This paper characterizes models of ambiguous beliefs in the absence of the completeness axiom. We axiomatize multiple-selves versions of some of the most important examples of complete and ambiguity averse preferences, and characterize when those incomplete preferences are ambiguity averse.
