Quantum mechanics and violations of the sure-thing principle: The use of probability interference and other concepts

By Andrei Yu Khrennikov and Emmanuel Haven


This paper was published as Journal of Mathematical Psychology, 2009, 53 (5), pp. 378-388. It is available from http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00222496. Doi: 10.1016/j.jmp.2009.01.007Metadata only entryThe use of quantum mechanical concepts in social science is a fairly new phenomenon. This paper uses one of quantum mechanics’ most basic concepts, probability interference, to explain the violation of an important decision theory principle (the ‘sure-thing principle’). We also attempt to introduce other quantum mechanical concepts in relation to the sure-thing principle violation
