This book offers a broad view of the psychological and decision-analytic frontiers of current research on human decision making. There are altogether 21 papers: on basic theory concerning the notion of a good' decision and requisite decision models; on methodology for tracing or describing information search, choice heuristics and multiple objectives of decision makers; on the judgement of technological risks and the political processing of uncertainty; and on various practical applications including analytic versus knowledge-based methods for medical decision making. Apart from updating the records of behavioural decision theorists, the book should be valuable to researchers and teachers concerned with decision analysis and practical applications of decision theory to such varied problems as personal decision counseling, multiple criteria decision aids and the design of decision support systems, research design and risk management.
