    What is "decision theory"?

    The title says it all. I don't have any knowledge whatsoever on the matter, and just want to know what it is.

    Any information is appreciated. :smile:

    Here's a brief reference; it's not so much a theory as a collection of techniques to analyze information in the presence of confusing factors. Part of operation research or managment science.
