Collective Choice Probabilities

This paper studies probabilistic collective choice behavior. The concept of the composition rule for forced choice probabilities is determined in terms of the choice probabilities of choosing a stimulus from a finite set of stimuli that is “composed” of the unforced elementary response probabilities. This study starts, as usual, from the individual level of choice and extends our composition rule to the case of collective choice.
