The standard economic choice model assumes that the decision maker chooses from sets of alternatives. In contrast, we analyze a choice model in which the decision maker encounters the alternatives in… (More)

We develop a framework for modeling choice in the presence of framing effects. An extended choice function assigns a chosen element to every pair (A, f) where A is a set of alternatives and f is a… (More)

We investigate the effect of ballot order on the outcomes of California city council and school board elections. Candidates listed first win office between four and five percentage points more often… (More)

Multivariate spectral estimation based on parametric modelling has been applied to epileptic surface EEG in order to detect EEG changes that occur prior to the clinical outbreak of the seizure. A… (More)

724 In 1981, an internal study by American Airlines found that travel agents booked the first flight that appeared on their computer screen 53 percent of the time, and a flight that appeared… (More)

After playing the Chicken game, players report their beliefs about their opponent’s strategy in different frames. It is found that the framing of the belief elicitation question influences the degree… (More)

An individual displays various preference orderings in different payoff-irrelevant circumstances. It is assumed that the variation in the observed preference orderings is the outcome of some… (More)

A choice function is a rule that chooses a single alternative from every set of alternatives drawn from a finite ground set. A rationalizable choice function satisfies the consistency condition;… (More)

We develop a framework for modelling choice in the presence of framing effects. An extended choice function assigns a chosen element to every pair (A, f ) where A is a set of alternatives, and f is a… (More)

We establish how large a sample of past decisions is required to predict future decisions of a committee with few members. The committee uses majority rule to choose between pairs of alternatives.… (More)
