In this paper and its companion paper, Board & Chung [4], we provide foundations for a model of unawareness that can be used to distinguish between what an agent is unaware of and what she simply does not know. At an informal level, this distinction plays a key role in a number of recent papers such as Tirole [27] and Chung & Fort-now [6]. Here we provide a(More)

The goal of this paper is to construct a user-friendly model of unawareness. We start from an axiom system (in first-order modal logic) that enables us to express the following kinds of sentences: " the agent is not sure whether or not there is anything that he is unaware of " , and " I am not sure whether or not you are aware of something that I am not ".(More)
We report the first measurements of inclusive W and Z boson cross sections times the corresponding leptonic branching ratios for pp collisions at √ s = 1.96 TeV based on the decays of the W and Z bosons into electrons and muons. The data were recorded with the CDF II detector at the Fermilab 4 Tevatron and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 72.0 ±(More)
1 This paper studies the impact of credit markets on optimal contracting, when the agent's " interim preference " over upcoming contracts is private information because personal financial decisions affect it via the wealth effect. The main result is a severe loss of incentive provision: equilibrium contracts invariably cause the agent to shirk (i.e., exert(More)
