Preference from Priorities: Dynamic Logic
In the preceding two chapters, a rich notion of priority-based preference has been studied in stable situations. Various ways of deriving preferences from a priority sequence have been proposed, both under complete and under incomplete information. In this chapter we take up one of the main themes of this book, and address the dynamics of changes in preferences in this richer setting. What we find is that our earlier methods for plain betterness orderings generalize in an obvious manner, with a few adaptations. Therefore, this chapter will be short, since the connection, once seen, is straightforward.
