Conditional preference orders and their numerical representations
Samuel Drapeau and
Journal of Mathematical Economics, 2016, vol. 63, issue C, 106-118
We provide an axiomatic system modeling conditional preference orders which is based on conditional set theory. Conditional numerical representations are introduced, and a conditional version of the theorems of Debreu on the existence of numerical representations is proved. The conditionally continuous representations follow from a conditional version of Debreu’s Gap Lemma the proof of which relies on a conditional version of the axiom of choice, free of any measurable selection argument. We give a conditional version of the von Neumann and Morgenstern representation as well as automatic conditional continuity results, and illustrate them by examples.
