Uncovered set choice rules
I study necessary and sufficient conditions for a choice function to be rationalised in the following sense: there exists a complete asymmetric relation T (a tournament ) such that for each feasible (finite) choice situation, the choice coincides with the uncovered set of T . This notion of rationality explains not only cyclical and context dependent choices observed in practice, but also provides testable restrictions on observable choice behavior.
