Info-Gap Decision Theory | Voodoo Decision-Making | Robust Decisions | Severe Uncertainty | Satisficing vs Optimizing | Maximin


Articles

My preference is to work on my own. Of course, over the years I wrote joint papers with colleagues and students, but ... on the whole, I work on my own.

While I do plan to continue to publish journal articles, my focus over the next few of years will be on books and monographs.
