Conference paper


The aim of this lecture is to present a survey of some results related to Choquet Expected Utility -C.E.U.-Models, a promising class of models introduced separately by Quiggin (1982), Yaari (1987) and Schmeidler (1982,1989), which allow to separate attitudes towards uncertainty (or risk) from attitudes towards wealth while respecting the first order stochastic dominance axiom.
