Statistical Decision Theory and Related Topics II is a compendium of papers presented at an international symposium on Statistical Decision Theory and Related Topics held at Purdue University in May, The researchers invited to participate, and to author papers for this volume, are among the leaders in the field of Statistical Decision Theory. Applied statistical decision theory: Author: SCHLAIFER, Robert; RAIFFA, Howard: Abstract: In general, this book is concerned with capital budgeting and decision theory. Specifically, it centers around a singular uncertainty decision - the decision by oil and gas operators to drill, or not to drill, a well.

The theory of statistics provides a basis for the whole range of techniques, in both study design and data analysis, that are used within applications of statistics. The theory covers approaches to statistical-decision problems and to statistical inference, and the actions and deductions that satisfy the basic principles stated for these different approaches. Decision analysis, also called statistical decision theory, involves procedures for choosing optimal decisions in the face of uncertainty. In the simplest situation, a decision maker must choose the best decision from a finite set of alternatives when there are two or more possible.

These are the books that I've found helpful. This is by no means a complete list--and in particular, I'm not trying to cover anything beyond the core topics--but it is a solid start. As always, my recommendations tell you as much about my biases. Although intended to communicate the relevance, feasibility and value of decision theory for ‘everyday’ (statistical) professionals, the book can also be of value as a reference in a graduate course in statistics.” (Heleno Bolfarine, Mathematical Reviews, September, ).

Berger. Decision theory (or the theory of choice not to be confused with choice theory) is the study of an agent's choices. Decision theory can be broken into two branches: normative decision theory, which analyzes the outcomes of decisions or determines the optimal decisions given constraints and assumptions, and descriptive decision theory, which analyzes how agents actually make the decisions they do.
