Local Utility and Multivariate Risk Aversion
We revisit Machina's local utility as a tool to analyze attitudes to multivariate risks. Using martingale embedding techniques, we show that for non-expected utility maximizers choosing between
Local Utility and Multivariate Risk Aversion

Local Utility and Multivariate Risk Aversion
TLDR
It is shown that for nonexpected utility maximizers choosing between multivariate prospects, aversion to multivariate mean preserving increases in risk is equivalent to the concavity of the local utility functions, thereby generalizing Machina's result in [18].
Preference Elicitation and Robust Optimization with Multi-Attribute Quasi-Concave Choice Functions
TLDR
This paper considers ambiguity in choice functions over a multi-attribute prospect space and proposes two approaches based respectively on the support functions and level functions of quasi-concave functions to develop tractable formulations of the maximin preference robust optimization model.
Stochastic dominance for law invariant preferences: The happy story of elliptical distributions
We study the connections between stochastic dominance and law invariant preferences. Whenever the functional that represents preferences depends only on the law of the random variable, we shall look
Preference Robust Optimization for Quasi-concave Choice Functions
TLDR
This paper proposes a PRO model to support choice functions that are monotonic, quasi-concave, and multi-attribute (have multiple objectives/criteria), and shows that the robust choice function can be constructed efficiently by solving a sequence of linear programming problems.
Conic Portfolio Theory
Portfolios are designed to maximize a conservative market value or bid price for the portfolio. Theoretically this bid price is modeled as reflecting a convex cone of acceptable risks supporting an
The Microeconomics of Choice under Risk and Uncertainty: Where Are We?
Financial decision-making is not straightforward, in part, because such decisions generally involve comparing financial assets the payoffs from which are subject to risk and uncertainty. Given that
Multidimensional inequalities and generalized quantile functions
In this paper, we extend the generalized Yaari’s dual theory for multidimensional distributions, in the vein of Galichon and Henry’s paper (Galichon and Henry in J Econ Theory 147:1501–1516, 2012).

The Dual Theory of Choice under Risk
This paper investigates the consequences of the following modification of Expected Utility theory: instead of requiring independence with respect to probability mixtures of risky prospects, require
COMONOTONIC MEASURES OF MULTIVARIATE RISKS
We propose a multivariate extension of a well‐known characterization by S. Kusuoka of regular and coherent risk measures as maximal correlation functionals. This involves an extension of the notion
Pareto efficiency for the concave order and multivariate comonotonicity
Under stochastic dominance Choquet-expected utility and anticipated utility are identical
The aim of this paper is to convince the reader that Choquet-expected utility, as initiated by Schmeidler (1982, 1989) for decision making under uncertainty, when formulated for decision making under
Dominance Conditions for Multivariate Utility Functions
Stochastic dominance conditions are given for n-variate utility functions, when k-variate risk aversion is assumed for k = 1, 2, ', n. These conditions are expressed through a comparison of
Multivariate Risk Aversion, Utility Independence and Separable Utility Functions
This paper concerns utility functions for more than one attribute. A new type of risk aversion found only in muitivariate utility functions is defined. Certain behavioral assumptions, which are

The literature on inequality measurement has been largely concerned with single-dimensioned indicators. This paper explores some of the issues which arise when there are several dimensions to

Abstract. This paper generalizes the axiomatic approach to the design of income inequality measures to the multiattribute context. While the extension of most axioms considered desirable for
