Speaker

David Bell Professor David Bell

David E. Bell is a Baker Foundation Professor at Harvard Business School.  He has a BA degree from Oxford University in Mathematics and a PhD from MIT in Operations Research.

In 2001 he was awarded the Ramsey Medal, the highest distinction of the Decision Analysis Society of INFORMS.

This talk is intended as the first of many in which decision analysts give casual talks on topics of interest to them. I will review, in a non-detailed way, three papers that I have written (during my career, i.e. not recently, and for the most part uncelebrated) that concern utility functions for money. An appropriate audience would be decision analysts with some research interest in the properties of utility functions. Though most of my published work has concerned multiattribute utility, this talk will not, except tangentially. It will also not be a general review of decision analysis.
