Abstract

Our first article, by Jay Simon and Francois Melese is on “A Multiattribute Sealed-Bid Procurement Auction with Multiple Budgets for Government Vendor Selection.” Next, Ali E. Abbas develops “The Multiattribute Utility Tree.” In our third article, Thomas W. Keelin and Bradford W. Powley introduce a method for encoding uncertainty on a continuous variable using “Quantile-Parameterized Distributions.” Next, Warren J. Hahn and James S. Dyer present “A Discrete Time Approach for Modeling Two-Factor Mean-Reverting Stochastic Processes.” The final article is by Jeffery L. Guyse and Jay Simon on “Consistency Among Elicitation Techniques for Intertemporal Choice: A Within-Subjects Investigation of the Anomalies.”
