Risk attitudes and the stag-hunt game

A stag-hunt game (with the risky and safe actions) has two pure Nash equilibria that are Pareto-rankable. The risky action leads either to the Pareto-superior equilibrium (high payoff) or to out of equilibrium (low payoff) depending on the opponent's action. Both players may want to obtain high payoff but uncertainty about the opponent's action may prevent them to take such strategic risk, This paper investigates how information about the risk attitude of an opponent affects a player's action choice in the stag-hunt game. I find that although a subject's propensity to choose the risky action depends on her opponent's risk attitude, it does not depend on her own risk attitude.


Measuring risk tolerance in finance: Does the decision frame matter?
Özdemir, Özlem (2013-06-01)
Risk taking behavior has great influence on the decision making process of individuals. In this respect, the methodology used in assessing individuals’ risk tolerance becomes an important issue. However, there is lack of unique and commonly used risk tolerance measure in literature. There are mainly two different approaches in measuring risk tolerance in literature; lottery versus financial risk assessment technique (FRT). The purpose of this study is to investigate whether measurement techniques differ wi...
Risk Distribution Among Uncorrelated Risk Factors: Diversified Risk Parity
Yerli, Çiğdem; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (2022-03-01)
This paper aims to distribute the risk among equity risk, interest rate risk and inflation risk, in a portfolio to prevent a risk concentrated portfolio by employing diversified risk parity (DRP) strategy. Principal component analysis and minimum linear torsion models are used to obtain DRP strategies which are compared with other risk based models and tested on five different asset classes whose prices are collected between January 1988 and December 2017. For attaining a thorough analysis, we include mean-...
Incorporating sustainability in risk assessment of construction projects
Dikmen Toker, İrem; Birgönül, Mustafa Talat (null; 2017-11-27)
There are standard procedures proposed for risk management (RM) such as “ISO 31000:2009 Risk Management Principles and Guidelines” that provides principles, framework and a process for managing risk. However, RM is still among the most popular research topics in project management domain as there is a lack of consensus on the definition of risk as well as the contextual factors affecting its level. Many authors argue that although complexity, vulnerability, uncertai...
Differential Factors Revisited: Corrected Attacks on PRESENT and SERPENT
Tezcan, Cihangir (2015-09-11)
Differential factors, which prevent the attacker to distinguish some of the guessed keys corresponding to an active S-box during a differential attack on a block cipher, are recently introduced at Lightsec 2014 and used to reduce the time complexities of the previous differential-linear attacks on Serpent. Key recovery attacks generally consists of two parts: Key guess using the distinguisher and exhaustive search on the remaining key bits. Thus, we show that differential factors can reduce the time complex...
