Example text

These are obtained by slicing along subspaces corresponding to the span of subsets of axes. We have explicitly included the gambles that correspond to the contingent border gambles of the full uncertainty model. A conditional set of desirable gambles expresses current commitments contingent on the occurrence of the conditioning event. Although it is not required by the rationality criteria we have adopted, conditional models are also often assumed to express current or future commitments after (nothing but) the conditioning event is learned to have occurred: they can be used as updated sets of desirable gambles.

The set of all coherent sets of desirable gambles on the possibility space  is denoted ????(). No coherent set of desirable gambles includes an assessment that incurs partial loss. However, an assessment that avoids partial loss can, in general, be included in an infinity of coherent sets of desirable gambles. 4: six of its coherent extensions are shown. ) The set ???? ≔ { ∈ ????() ∶  ⊆ } contains all the coherent desirable gambles that include an assessment . The coherent sets of desirable gambles can be ordered according to set inclusion ⊆.
