re·sponse hi·er·ar·chy

[MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] is called subjectively rationalizable for viewpoint [sigma] if and only if there exists [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] which satisfies [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] is called a best response hierarchy of [[summation].sub.[sigma]].
As a result, the actions depicted in the squares in the figure constitute a best response hierarchy: each action is a best response in the viewpoint's subjective game to the actions described in the one-step lower layer.
This implies the existence of a best response hierarchy of [[summation].sub.[sigma]]; that is, there exists [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
The concept of subjective rationalizability is apparently impractical because calculation of a subjectively rationalizable action requires us to identify a best response hierarchy, which consists of infinite elements.
That is, this [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] is a best response hierarchy of [[summation].sub.
Suppose there exists a best response hierarchy of viewpoint a.
In this context, the notion that the NDE scale should define a probabilistic response hierarchy does not simply mean that its items differ with respect to their endorsement rates.
