This book presents an overview of the fundamental concepts and outcomes of rational decision making under uncertainty, highlighting the implications for statistical practice.The authors have developed a series of self contained chapters focusing on bridging the gaps between the different fields that have contributed to rational decision making and presenting ideas in a unified framework and notation while respecting and highlighting the different and sometimes conflicting perspectives.This book:Provides a rich collection of techniques and procedures.

Anyone interested in the whys and wherefores of statistical science will find much to enjoy in this book.Parmigiani, Giovanni is the author of 'Decision Theory: Principles and Approaches', published 2009 under ISBN 9780471496571 and ISBN 047149657X.
