Utility Functions for Ceteris Paribus Preferences

Michael McGeachie and Jon Doyle

Although ceteris paribus preference statements concisely represent one natural class of preferences over outcomes or goals, many applications of such preferences require numeric utility function representations to achieve computational efficiency. We provide algorithms, complete for finite universes of binary features, for converting a set of qualitative ceteris paribus preferences into quantitative utility functions.
