Decision Making under Uncertainty

Description

Back to top

Decision Theory, including its applications and closely-related topics, is a deep and active area of research. It includes theories of how people make or should make decisions, often in the face of uncertainty. Mathematically, such theories often connect preferences or choices with functional representations, and/or analyze and apply such functionals as models of behavior. At this workshop, invited scholars will present their recent work and engage in discussion with the audience.
