A similar criterion of optimality, however, can be applied to a wider class of decision problems. As will be explained in the next section, if theFile Size: KB. Decision making theory is a theory of how rational individuals should behave under risk and uncertainty. It uses a set of axioms about how rational individuals behave which has been widely challenged on both empirical and theoretical ground.

On its or so pages, Resnik's book covers most themes of modern decision theory: decisions under uncertainty, under risk (with separate chapters on probability theory and the concepts of utility), game theory, and social choice by: Decision Theory is fundamental to all scientific disciplines, including biostatistics, computer science, economics and engineering.

Anyone interested in the whys and wherefores of statistical science will find much to enjoy in this book. Read more. Product details Cited by: Top 10 Best Decision Making Books | WallstreetMojo.

Theory and Decision is devoted to all aspects of decision-making, exploring research in psychology, management science, economics, the theory of games, statistics, operations research, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, and analytical philosophy. Moreover, it addresses cross-fertilization among these disciplines.

This journal draws special attention to. Decision theory, in statistics, a set of quantitative methods for reaching optimal decisions.A solvable decision problem must be capable of being tightly formulated in terms of initial conditions and choices or courses of action, with their consequences.

In general, such consequences are not known with certainty but are expressed as a set of probabilistic outcomes. The series focuses on the application of methods and ideas of logic, mathematics and statistics to the social sciences.

In particular, formal treatment of social phenomena, the analysis of decision making, information theory and problems of inference are central themes of this part of the library.

Decision theory provides a formal Theory and Decision book for making logical choices in the face of uncertainty. Given a set of alternatives, a set of consequences, and a correspondence between those sets, decision theory offers conceptually simple procedures for choice.

This book presents an overview of the fundamental concepts and outcomes of rational decision making under uncertainty. Theory and Decision book decision theory is composed of several rational concepts related to decision making in adherence to review, design, choice, and intelligence.

I took a course in decision theory (they called it decision analysis) at Stanford years ago. I can't remember the name of the book we used, but I did remember that MIT OpenCourseWare has a class called "Decisions, Games and Rational Choice." The r.

Probabilistic Publishing's mission is to publish significant decision and risk analysis books and keep these books in print so that key publications are available for managers, executives, students, faculty members, and decision analysis professionals.

We have deliberately kept our prices low so that students, employees, and small business. In the field of statistical decision theory Professors Raiffa and Schlaifer have sought to develop new analytical tech niques by which the modern theory of utility and subjective probability can actu ally be applied to the economic analysis of typical sampling problems.

Diffusion of innovations is a theory that seeks to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread. Everett Rogers, a professor of communication studies, popularized the theory in his book Diffusion of Innovations; the book was first published inand is now in its fifth edition ().

Rogers argues that diffusion is the process by which an innovation is. Decision-theory tries to throw light, in various ways, on the former type of period.

A truly interdisciplinary subject Modern decision theory has developed since the middle of the 20th century through contributions from several academic disciplines. Although it is now clearly an academic subject of its own right, decision theory is. This book provides an introduction to the challenges of decision making under uncertainty from a computational perspective.

It presents both the theory behind decision making models and algorithms and a collection of example applications that range from speech recognition to aircraft collision avoidance.

It is suitable for both self-study and as the basis for an upper-division undergraduate course in judgment and decision making.

The book is written to be accessible to anybody with minimum knowledge of mathematics (high-school level algebra and some elementary notions of set theory and probability, which are reviewed in the book).

Based on courses developed by the author over several years, this book provides access to a broad area of research that is not available in separate articles or books of readings. Topics covered include the meaning and measurement of risk, general single-period portfolio problems, mean-variance analysis and the Capital Asset Pricing Model, the Arbitrage Pricing Theory, 4/5(4).

An emphasis on foundational aspects of normative decision theory (rather than descriptive decision theory) makes the book particularly useful for philosophy students, but it will appeal to readers in a range of disciplines including economics, psychology, political science and Cited by: Decision Making Under Uncertainty Theory And Application.
