- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decision_theory
**Decision theory**(or the**theory of choice**not to be confused with choice theory) is the study of an agent's choices.[1] Decision theory can be broken into two branches: normative decision theory, which analyzes the outcomes of decisions or determines the optimal decisions given constraints and assumptions, and descriptive decision theory, which analyzes**how**agents actually make the decisions they do.
