Abstract
We discuss several features of coherent choice functions
where the admissible options in a decision problem are
exactly those which maximize expected utility for some
probability/utility pair in fixed set S of probability/utility
pairs. In this paper we consider, primarily, normal form
decision problems under uncertainty where only the
probability component of S is indeterminate. Coherent
choice distinguishes between each pair of sets of
probabilities. We axiomatize the theory of choice
functions and show these axioms are necessary for
