Part of the Studies in Economic Theory book series (ECON.THEORY, volume 16)


In this Chapter we study the choice functions rationalizable by utility maximization within a threshold dependent on the feasible set X and in some cases on the compared alternatives. The threshold function ε is considered to be in the form ε = ε(x, y, X), ε = ε(y, X), ε = ε (x, X), or ε = ε(X).
