Abstract

Given n attributes, it is shown that if two subsets of these attributes overlap and are each utility independent of their respective complements, then their union, intersection, symmetric difference, and two differences are each utility independent of their complements. A chaining theorem using this result indicates how to simplify the assessment of a multiattribute utility function to the maximum extent possible, subject to any specific set of utility independence assumptions.
