Infinite Previsions and Finitely Additive Expectations
Any type of content formally published in an academic journal, usually following a peer-review process.
We give an extension of de Finetti’s concept of coherence to unbounded (but real-valued) random variables that allows for gambling in the presence of infinite previsions. We present a finitely additive extension of the Daniell integral to unbounded random variables that we believe has advantages over Lebesgue-style integrals in the finitely additive setting. We also give a general version of the Fundamental Theorem of Prevision to deal with conditional previsions and unbounded random variables.
