Asymmetric Choquet random walks are defined, in the form of dynamically consistent random walks allowing for asymmetric conditional capacities. By revisiting Kast and Lapied (Dynamically consistent Choquet random walk and real investments. Document de Travail n. 2010-33, GREQAM, HAL id: halhs-00533826, 2010b) and Kast et al. (Econ Model, 38:495-503, 2014) we show that some findings regarding the effects of ambiguity aversion are preserved in the more general framework, which is of interest in several applications to policy making, risk management, corporate decisions, real option valuation of investment/ disinvestment projects, etc. The effect of ambiguity on the higher moments is investigated, as well, as they have an interpretation in terms of the psychological attitude of a decision-maker towards ambiguity. Finally, some financial applications are provided as an illustration.

    Summary. In real-life decision problems, decision makers are never provided with the necessary background structure: the set of states of the world, the outcome space, the set of actions. They have to devise all these by themselves. I model the (static) choice problem of a decision maker (DM)...

    This paper studies an M/M/1 queueing decision process in which the arrival and service rates are chosen from a finite set whenever the queue length changes. Each choice has a switching cost depending on the chosen rates and those currently in use, and a usage cost depending on the chosen rates...


    The Markov decision problem of locating a policy to maximize the long-run average reward subject to K long-run average cost constraints is considered. It is assumed that the state and action spaces are finite and the law of motion is unichain, that is, every pure policy gives rise to a Markov...
