Applying prospect theory to multi-attribute problems with independence assumptions.

Stanley, J. and Coolen, F.P.A. (2019) 'Applying prospect theory to multi-attribute problems with independence assumptions.', Involve : a journal of mathematics., 12 (4). pp. 687-711.


We discuss a descriptive theory of decision making which has received much attention in recent decades: prospect theory. We specifically focus on applying the theory to problems with two attributes, assisted by different independence assumptions. We discuss a process for solving decision problems using the theory before applying it to a real life example of purchasing breakdown cover.
