Peter’s CV

The best paper that I ever co-authored was
Abdellaoui, Mohammed & Peter P. Wakker (2005). The Likelihood Method for Decision under Uncertainty. Theory and Decision, 58, 3–76.

It is also my least-cited paper. Explanation (to console myself): In those days the journal printed half per page what other journals did.  In another journal the paper would have taken 37 pages not 74.  No-one prints 74 pages for one paper.
