Abstract: For (S, Σ) a measurable space, let $${\cal C}_1$$ and $${\cal C}_2$$ be convex, weak * closed sets of probability measures on Σ. We show that if $${\cal C}_1$$ ∪ $${\cal C}_2$$ satisfies the Lyapunov property , then there exists a set A ∈ Σ such that min μ1 ∈ $${\cal C}_1$$ μ 1 (A) > max μ2 ∈ $${\cal C}_2$$ (A). We give applications to Maxmin Expected Utility (MEU) and to the core of a lower probability. Copyright Springer 2006
