• Consistent Rationalizability 

    Bossert, Walter; Sprumont, Yves; Suzumura, Kotaro (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2002)
    Consistency of a binary relation requires any preference cycle to involve indifference only. As shown by Suzumura (1976b), consistency is necessary and sufficient for the existence of an ordering extension of a relation. Because of this important role ...
  • Rationalizability of Choice Functions on General Domains without Full Transitivity 

    Sprumont, Yves; Suzumura, Kotaro (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2001)
    The rationalizability of a choice function by means of a transitive relation has been analyzed thoroughly in the literature. However, not much seems to be known when transitivity is weakened to quasi-transitivity or acyclicity. We describe the logical ...
  • Revealed Preference and Choice under Uncertainty 

    Bossert, Walter; Suzumura, Kotaro (Université de Montréal. Département de sciences économiques., 2010-11-06)
    We employ the theory of rational choice to examine whether observable choices from feasible sets of prospects can be generated by the optimization of some underlying decision criterion under uncertainty. Rather than focusing on a specific theory of ...
