Formatted abstract
This paper shows that, for Choquet expected utility preferences, the axioms consquentialism,
state independence
and conditional certainty equivalent consistency under
updating characterise a family of capacities, which we call Generalized Neo-Additive
Capacities
(GNAC). This family contains as special cases, among others, neo-additive
capacities as introduced by Chateauneuf, Eichberger, and Grant, Hurwicz capacities,
and ε-contaminations.Moreover, we will show that the convex version of a GNAC is
the only capacity for which the core of the full Bayesian updates of a capacity, introduced
by Jaffray, equals the set of Bayesian updates of the probability distributions
in the core of the original capacity.
