Choice under uncertainty with the best and worst in mind: neo-additive capacities

Alain Chateauneuf (), Jürgen Eichberger and Simon Grant ()

No 03-10, Papers from Sonderforschungsbreich 504

Abstract: The concept of a non-extreme-outcome-additive capacity (neo-additive capacity ) is introduced. Neo-additive capacities model optimistic and pessimistic attitudes towards uncer-tainty as observed in many experimental studies. Moreover, neo-additive capacities can be applied easily in economic problems, as we demonstrate by examples. This paper provides an axiomatisation of Choquet expected utility with neo-capacities in a framework of purely subjective uncertainty.
