A Simple Axiomatization of Iterated Choquet Objectives
AbstractA set of axioms which characterizes a preference representable by the iterated Choquet expected utility is presented. This objective function is attractive since it possesses a feature of dynamical consistency. Furthermore,we show that under the same axioms the conditional preference is represented by the Choquet expected utility with respect to the capacity which is updated according to the Dempster-Shafer rule. We do this by weakening Schmeidler's axiom of comonotonic independence to our axiom of constrained comonotonic independence and by adding the axiom of dynamical consistency.
