Call for Papers - Special Issue

The journal is inviting submissions to the following special issue

The Mathematics of Subjective Probability 

Submission deadline February 28, 2019

The subjective approach to probability has historically had great importance in the comprehension of uncertainty phenomena, as witnessed by the works of de Finetti, Dubins, Savage and of too many other scholars to mention explicitly.
Although the axiomatic setting introduced by Kolmogorov is more popular, subjective probability has revealed to be a thriving field of research even in recent years. Roughly speaking, the subjective approach is common to all those problems where probability is not taken as an assumption, but rather as a part of the solution.
Decisions in Economics and Finance, serving as the official publication vehicle of the (Italian) Association for Mathematics Applied to Social and Economic Sciences (AMASES), provides a specialized forum for the publication of research in all areas of mathematics that are applied to economics, finance, insurance, management, and the social sciences. The focus is especially on original research exploring topics in mathematics or computational techniques that are explicitly motivated by or contribute to the analysis of economic or financial problems.
The journal is thus now inviting contributions to the special issue on:
The Mathematics of Subjective Probability.
This special issue is a follow-up of the workshop:
The Mathematics of Subjective Probability, Milan, 3-5 September 2018, but with an open call for new contributions.
All papers related to the subjective approach to probability, as (tentatively) sketched above, are welcome. The submitted papers are expected to have a mathematical content. An (incomplete) list of topics is
• Ambiguity
• Bayesian statistics
• Coherence
• Conditioning
• Decision models under risk and uncertainty
• Equivalent martingale measures
• Finitely additive probabilities
• Gambling
• Game Theory
• Limit theorems
• Mass transportation
• Merging of opinions
• Multiple priors
• Partial knowledge

Transfer of copyright to Springer (respective to owner if other than Springer) becomes effective if and when a Copyright Transfer Statement is signed or transferred electronically by the corresponding author. After submission of the Copyright Transfer Statement signed by the corresponding author, changes of authorship or in the order of the authors listed will not be accepted by Springer.

    The copyright to this article, including any graphic elements therein (e.g. illustrations, charts, moving images), is assigned for good and valuable consideration to Springer effective if and when the article is accepted for publication and to the extent assignable if assignability is restricted for by applicable law or regulations (e.g. for U.S. government or crown employees).

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
