Game theory is the study of conflict and cooperation among multiple decision makers, and is thus sometimes called "interactive decision theory." Social choice theory is the study of making a collective decision by combining the preferences of multiple decision makers in various ways.

This FAQ draws heavily from two textbooks on decision theory: Resnik (1987) and Peterson (2009).

, concerns the study of preferences, uncertainties, and other issues related to making "optimal" or "rational" choices.

It has been discussed by economists, psychologists, philosophers, mathematicians, statisticians, and computer scientists.

Suppose the four conceivable outcomes in the above decision problem are: (1) House and

In this framework, speaking loosely, a state is a part of the world that is not an act (that can be performed now by the decision maker) or an outcome (the question of what, more precisely, states are is a complex question that is beyond the scope of this document).As the situation merits, we can be even more specific.For example, when discussing the type of decision utility used in an interval scale utility function constructed using Von Neumann & Morgenstern's axiomatic approach (see section 8), some people use the term .by asking them which options they prefer for a large set of pairs of alternatives (as on Who Is Hotter.com).The number that corresponds to an outcome's utility can convey different information depending on the that we are discussing now to describe decision preferences.

In this case, the decision maker might prefer outcome 1 over outcome 2, outcome 2 over outcome 3, and outcome 3 over outcome 4.
