REU Theory & Allais

A repo containing two Mathematica notebooks for applying REU theory to the Allais paradox. Each notebook accompanies a commentary by Johanna Thoma and me on Lara Buchak's book, Risk and Rationality. Our commentaries challenge the book's claim that REU theory predicts the modal preferences in the Allais paradox.

  1. original.nb attempts to model the Allais problem within REU theory, as described in our paper, "Risk Writ Large".

  2. skewed.nb analyzes the variant of our original model introduced in Buchak's reply, and critiqued in our followup commentary.
