Subjective Linear Utility on Products of Mixture Sets

  • Peter C. Fishburn
Part of the Theory and Decision Library book series (TDLU, volume 31)


In Part II of the book, S is a set of states of the world, and ℐ is a Boolean algebra of subsets of S. We refer to A ∈ ℐ as an event. As usual, ∅ will denote the empty event. In general, we reserve the phrase null event to denote any event that the individual believes to be impossible, i.e. an event that cannot possibly obtain or which the individual feels cannot contain a state that describes the true nature of the world about which the individual is uncertain.
