RELATIONS BETWEEN STOCHASTIC ORDERINGS AND GENERALIZED STOCHASTIC PRECEDENCE
Probability in the engineering and informational sciences (Print)
The concept ofstochastic precedencebetween two real-valued random variables has often emerged in different applied frameworks. In this paper, we analyze several aspects of a more general, and completely natural, concept of stochastic precedence that also had appeared in the literature. In particular, we study the relations with the notions of stochastic ordering. Such a study leads us to introducing some special classes of bivariate copulas. Motivations for our study can arise from different
... lds. In particular, we consider the frame of Target-Based Approach in decisions under risk. This approach has been mainly developed under the assumption of stochastic independence between "Prospects" and "Targets". Our analysis concerns the case of stochastic dependence.
