# Random Expected Utility

@inproceedings{Gul2005RandomEU, title={Random Expected Utility}, author={Faruk Gul and Wolfgang Pesendorfer}, year={2005} }

We develop and analyze a model of random choice and random expected utility. A decision problem is a finite set of lotteries that describe the feasible choices. A random choice rule associates with each decision problem a probability measure over choices. A random utility function is a probability measure over von Neumann-Morgenstern utility functions. We show that a random choice rule maximizes some random utility function if and only if it is mixture continuous, monotone (the probability that… CONTINUE READING
