Risk and Uncertainty Aversion 49 5. CONCLUSIONS The preceding Sections contain a long list of relationships between the certainty equivalent function and the aversion to risk and uncertainty. , they do not imply the consideration of specific models, like the Expected Utility, the Rank Dependent Expected Utility, or the Choquet Expected Utility models.

The object of this paper is to provide an overview of the applications of distance and benefit functions to problems of choice and production under uncertainty. The general approach of the paper is in the spirit of Machina ( 1982).
