Gilboa and Schmeidler provide a new paradigm for modeling decision making under uncertainty. Case-based decision theory suggests that people make decisions by analogies to past cases: they tend to choose acts that performed well in the past in similar situations, and to avoid acts that performed poorly/5.

Unlike the classical theory of expected utility maximization, case-based decision theory does not assume that decision makers know the possible 'states of the world' or the outcomes, let alone the decision matrix attaching outcomes to act-state by: Gilboa and Schmeidler [22, 23] introduced a case-based decision theory, which makes decisions based on past experience in similar situations.

Case-Based Decision Theory (CBDT) is a theory of decision making which postulates that people tend to choose acts which performed well in similar cases in the past.

It was originally developed as a theory of decision making under uncertainty, for decision problems in which the states of the world are neither naturally given, nor can they be Cited by: 3. CASE-BASED DECISION THEORY* ITZHAK GILBOA AND DAVID SCHMEIDLER This paper suggests that decision-making under uncertainty is, at least partly, case-based.

We propose a model in which cases are primitive, and provide a simple axiomatization of a decision rule that chooses a "best" act based on its past performance in similar cases. Title: Case-based decision theory.

This acclaimed book by Itzhak Gilboa is available at in several formats for your : $ Case based research in tourism, travel, hospitality and events: Theory and practice.

We are thrilled to have received around 30 case studies for the CAUTHE case study project, we are expecting more submissions by the end of the month.

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: Gilboa and Schmeidler provide a new paradigm for modeling decision making under uncertainty.

The authors describe the general theory and its relationship to planning. Decision theory (or the theory of choice not to be confused with choice theory) is the study of an agent's choices. Decision theory can be broken into two branches: normative decision theory, which analyzes the outcomes of decisions or determines the optimal decisions given constraints and assumptions, and descriptive decision theory, which analyzes how agents actually make.

The formal model of case-based decision theory naturally gives rise to the notions of satisficing decisions and aspiration levels. *" We are grateful to many people for conversations and discussions that influenced this work.

In particular, we benefited from insightful conversations with Eva Gilboa, who also exposed us to case-based reasoning Cited by: The recipient of a Sloan Fellowship, among other awards, he has published articles in the leading economic theory journals, primarily on decision under uncertainty.

Professor Gilboa coauthored A Theory of Case-Based Decisions with David Schmeidler (Cambridge University Press, ). He received his Ph.D. from Tel-Aviv University in Price: $ Uncertain Decisions: Bridging Theory and Experiments presents advanced directions of thinking on decision theory - in particular the more recent contributions on non-expected utility theory, fuzzy decision theory and case-based theory.

This work also provides theoretical insights on measures of risk aversion and on new problems for general equilibrium analysis. Case-based decision theory was developed by Gilboa and Schmeidler. This article describes the framework and lays out the axiomatic foundations of the theory.

An illustration based on a model of repeated choice is provided and the applications of the theory to economic problems are listed.This paper provides two axiomatic derivations of a case-based decision rule.

Each axiomatization shows that, if preference orders over available acts in various contexts satisfy certain consistency requirements, then these orders can be numerically represented by maximization of a similarity-weighted utility by: He has worked with David Schmeidler on axiomatic foundation of non-Bayesian decision theory and contributed to research in complexity in game theory, evolutionary game theory, and social choice.

He is co-author of A Theory of Case-Based Decisions (with David Schmeidler, ), and author of Theory of Decision under Uncertainty () and of.
