On the basis of such general thinking, it is possible to characterize classes of investors by the shape of their utility function, such as non-satiable investors, risk-averse investors, and so on. Moreover, we are able to identify general rules that a class of investors would follow in choosing between two risky ventures. If all investors of a given class prefer one prospect from another, we say that this prospect dominates the 43 CHAPTER 3 CHOICE UNDER UNCERTAINTY other. 2 The stochastic dominance rules characterize the efficient set of a given class of investors; the efficient set consists of all risky ventures which are not dominated by other risky ventures according to the corresponding stochastic dominance relation.

Open and closed. Claim 1. s. and A1 , A2 , . . is a sequence of Borel subsets of U, then there is some metric e on U such that (i) (U, e) is a separable metric space isometric with a closed subset of R; (ii) A1 , A2 , . . 6). Proof of claim. Let B1 , B2 , . . be a countable base for the topology of (U, d). Define sets C1 , C2 , . . by C2n−1 = An and C2n = Bn n (n = 1, 2, . . ) and f : U → R by f (x) = ∞ n=1 2ICn (x)/3 . Then f is a 33 CHAPTER 2 PROBABILITY DISTANCES AND METRICS Borel-isomorphism of (U, d) onto f (U) ⊆ K, where K is the Cantor set, ∞ ˛n /3n : ˛n take value 0 or 2 .

Here the topological equivalence of d and e simply means that for any x, x1 , x2 , . . in U d(xn , x) → 0 ⇐⇒ e(xn , x) → 0. 1. m.

In his famous paper on measure theory, Lebesgue (1905) claimed that the projection of any Borel subset of R2 onto R is a Borel set. As noted by Souslin and his teacher Lusin (1930), this is in fact not true.
