Behavioral economics and auto-images of distributions of random variables

Alexander Harin

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Distributions of random variables defined on finite intervals were considered in connection with some problems of behavioral economics. To develop the results obtained for finite intervals, auto-image distributions of random variables defined on infinite or semi-infinite intervals are proposed in this article. The proposed auto-images are intended for constructing reference auto-image distributions for preliminary considerations and estimates near the boundaries of semi-infinite intervals and on finite intervals.
