SFB 504 Glossary

In the Sonderforschungsbereich 504 at the University of Mannheim, researchers from different disciplines (social psychology, economics, and business administration) work together. The research program comprises the theoretical foundation, empirical analysis and economic application of behavior which cannot be described by standard expected utility theory. It is the purpose of this glossary to establish a common core of scientific concepts that are used in this research. These concepts might not be common to all disciplines, but it is hoped that the glossary forms a basis for communication between the different disciplines and projects involved in the SFB 504.
