Quantum Markov Model for Data from Shafir-Tversky Experiments in Cognitive Psychology

  title={Quantum Markov Model for Data from Shafir-Tversky Experiments in Cognitive Psychology},

  journal={Open Syst. Inform. Dynam.},
We analyze, from the point of view of quantum probability, statistical data from two interesting experiments, done by Shafir and Tversky [1, 2] in the domain of cognitive psychology. These are gambling experiments of Prisoner Dilemma type. They have important consequences for economics, especially for the justification of the Savage “Sure Thing Principle” [3] (implying that agents of the market behave rationally). Data from these experiments were astonishing, both from the viewpoint of… CONTINUE READING
