On quasiconvex conditional maps


Series: Publication: 2011 Packaging Type: Paperback Language: English


Quasiconvex analysis has important applications in several optimization problems in science, economics and in finance, where convexity may be lost due to absence of global risk aversion, as for example in Prospect Theory [57].

Our interest in quasiconvex analysis was triggered by the recent paper [11] on quasiconvex risk measures, where the authors show that it is reasonable to weaken the convexity axiom in the theory of convex risk measures, introduced in [31] and [36]. This allows to maintain a good control of the risk, if one also replaces cash additivity by cash subadditivity [25].
