Logic of Choice and Economic Theory

S. N. Afriat

Oxford University Press

This is the fourth of six chapters in Part II about demand and utility cost, a typical area for what is understood as choice theory. It discusses separable utility. Its five sections are: models of separability; separability tests (for classical consistency and the more restrictive classical separable consistency); constructions (the definition of mathematical functions that can be constructed on the basis of the solutions to the conditions of separability presented in the previous section); (the) utility dimension (of the separability of a group of goods); and budget separability.

Keywords:   budget separability, choice, choice theory, classical consistency, classical separable consistency, conditions of separability, demand, mathematical economics, models, separability, separability tests, separable utility, utility cost, utility dimension of the separability of goods
