Duncan Luce’s two part challenge is to move from deterministic to stochastic models of choice and to develop statistical methodology for these stochastic models. Theories of choice responding to the first part of his challenge include models of random utility maximization, random regret minimization, sequential elimination and heuristic choice. The workshop will feature contributions addressing either one or both parts of Luce’s challenge, from researchers in Economics, Psychology and related disciplines.
Topics include, but are not limited to : axiomatic approaches; testing implications of discrete choice theories and other conditions, such as random utility, regularity, and different kinds of stochastic transitivity; non-parametric inference; context dependent choices; individual choice, population choice, or aggregation issues.
