Abstract / Description of output

This paper investigates the relationship between confidence, trust and risk. It proposes a game theoretical representation of confidence (trust). Confidence games explain to some extent similarities (differences) between confidence and trust. Moreover, the link between confidence and trust, in terms of games, allows a characterization of risk with respect to confidence.
