Utility value

The welfare a given investor assigns to an investment with a particular expected return and risk.

Utility Value

A subjective assessment of the expected return on an investment at a given risk. The utility value an investor assigns to a particular investment depends largely on the investor's risk tolerance. For instance, one investor may find that expected return X is appropriate for risk level Y, but a second investor may believe that X is too low for the riskiness.

The total system utility value of the coalition formation game G = (N, v) under the coalition structure CS, time sharing strategy [[GAMMA].sub.CS] and energy harvesting strategy [E.sub.CS] is superposed by the utility values of all coalitions, and is also equal to the sum rate of all the SBSs in N , which can be defined as follows:
The analysis generated utility values for product attributes.
The proposed algorithm consists of two phases to level wisely generate-and-test high utility itemsets to, respectively, find the effective upper bound of each candidate itemset in the transactions according to the downward closure property of transaction-weighted utilization and then perform an additional database scan to find the real utility values of the remaining candidate itemsets for discovering high utility itemsets.
Therefore, a mapping algorithm was developed using data for the EQ-5D and QLQ-C30 at baseline and four weeks to predict EQ-5D utility values at 8 and 12 weeks given the responses to the EORTC QLQ-C30 at those later assessments [21].
To better understand the motivation, four sets of variables were used: 1) intrinsic values (interest and desire for teaching profession), 2) personal utility values (job security), 3) social utility value (making social contribution), and 4) fallback career (limited opportunities).The findings of the study show that respondents were motivated to join the teaching profession due to their affection for children and their interest in the teaching profession (intrinsic value).
The DN structure is used to produce expected utility values that may be useful in the distributed decision context.
From the knowledge of the partial utility functions of the individual criteria and their division of probability we can derive the mean utility values E[[u.sub.i]([x.sup.j.sub.i])] of each project with regard to i-th criterion.

The nodes of the tree contain utility values, i.e., the quality of a node.
As a result, CA delivers utility values that are determined by preference choices that can contain cost components used to establish a value of total utility, a customer value.
We say that such a collection is an equilibrium if the households' consumption plans maximize their utility values given their incomes; the representative firm maximizes its profit given the wage and interest rate; and the demands for bonds, market capital, and labor always equal their corresponding supplies.
