Abstract

A possibility of the existence of a discontinuity of Prelec’s (probability weighting) function at the probability p = 1 is discussed. This possibility is supported by the purely mathematical theorems and the “certain–uncertain” inconsistency of the random–lottery incentive experiments. The results of the well-known experiment support it as well.
