On two unquietness measures for the finite experiences. (English) Zbl 0499.94008

Mathematics at the service of man, Proc. 2nd World Conf., Las Palmas/Spain 1982, 299-304 (1982).
Summary: In this paper, we study two unquietness measures which may be appropriate for two different situations. We first consider the function that we defined earlier for an unquietness measure, based upon utility ratios. We introduce and study as well the properties of a second measure of unquietness, based on utility differences.
