Solving Decision Problems with Mathematical Expectation
Mathematical expectation is one of the important digital characters of the random variables. Many decision variables in decision problem are random variables; it is difficult to define their concrete distribution, while we can use their mathematical expectation to resolve decision questions. The applications of mathematical expectation in decision question were analyzed by example from two aspects of project contract decision and obtain employment decision.
