  1. Dilip B. Madan & J. C. Owings (1988). Decision Theory with Complex Uncertainties. Synthese 75 (1):25 - 44.score: 870.0
    A case is made for supposing that the total probability accounted for in a decision analysis is less than unity. This is done by constructing a measure on the set of all codes for computable functions in such a way that the measure of every effectively accountable subset is bounded by a number <1. The consistency of these measures with the Savage axioms for rational preference is established. Implications for applied decision theory are outlined.

  2. Dilip B. Madan (1983). Inconsistent Theories as Scientific Objectives. Philosophy of Science 50 (3):453-470.score: 870.0
    Theories are conceptualized as predictors of phenomena using computable functions acting on prior world information. Formally, the concept of bounded prior world recursive function is defined and used as a candidate for a potential theory. An artificial world of fact is then constructed for which there exist two inconsistent best theories, in that they cannot be improved upon, and these theories are maximally inconsistent in that every best theory is a compromise. It is argued that in such a world the (...)
