On the Role of Immediate Probability in Various Decision Making Models

  • Chapter
The Ordered Weighted Averaging Operators

Abstract

Recently, new approaches have been presented which contribute to decision analysis modeling. These methods provide a means of handling various ways of representing events, decision makers’ attitudes and payoffs. We will discuss how the new approaches may be used with each other as well as in conjunction with traditional methods. The role of immediate probability in various decision making models will be highlighted.
