Abstract

In the standard theory of extensive measurement, a set of assumptions, or qualitative axioms, are formulated in terms of an ordering and a concatenation operation that lead to a deterministic additive scale unique up to a positive similarity transformation. In this paper, we extend the qualitative primitives of the theory of extensive measurement in such a way that the objects of the domain are represented by random variables and their expectations.
