  Expectation utilities - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Expectation utilities are future-regarding, and thus imply desires and beliefs; "natural" utilities are not.
Expectation utilities allow for long-term projects, which provide a higher proportion of utility than the natural utilities favored by those agents that can only pursue their immediate interest.
The notion of 'expectation utility' must not be mistaken for that of expected utility.

 Pythagorean expectation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pythagorean expectation is a formula invented by Bill James to estimate how many games a baseball team "should" have won based on the number of runs they scored and allowed.
The term is derived from the formula's resemblance to Pythagoras' formula to compute the length of the hypotenuse of a triangle from the lengths of its other two sides.
Applying the pythagorean expectation to Football: Includes a discussion of how the exponent in the formula should be larger the larger the number of points scored per game becomes.

 Expectation Values in Quantum Mechanics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
For example, the expectation value of the radius of the electron in the ground state of the hydrogen atom is the average value you expect to obtain from making the measurement for a large number of hydrogen atoms.
While the expectation value of a function of position has the appearance of an average of the function, the expectation value of momentum involves the representation of momentum as a quantum mechanical operator.
In general, the expectation value for any observable quantity is found by putting the quantum mechanical operator for that observable in the integral of the wavefunction over space:

 Expected value - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In probability theory (and especially gambling), the expected value (or mathematical expectation) of a random variable is the sum of the probability of each possible outcome of the experiment multiplied by its payoff ("value").
The expected value operator (or expectation operator) E is linear in the sense that

 Expectation Damages and the Theory of Overreliance
The basic remedy for breach of a bargain contract is expectation damages, which puts the injured party where she would have been had the contract been performed.
The theory of overreliance is not limited in its application to the expectation measure, but it is most salient to that measure, just because the expectation measure is the gold standard in a bargain context.
In contrast, the costs of a modified expectation measure would be very high, because of the direct costs that would be entailed in applying the theory of overreliance to actual cases, and the indirect effect of those costs on the behavior of contracting parties.

 More on Expectation Values
The expectation value of a binomial random variable with N trials and success probability p per trial is N*p.
This is analogous to an average of the values in a particular data set, except that for computing the average of a particular data set you can take all the values that happen to occur and multiply them by their observed relative frequency (as we discussed in a previous page).
The point is that to compute the expectation of Y, we need the probabilities that Y will take on particular values; because Y is the square of X, the probability that Y will take some value is found from the probability that X will take some other value.

 Establishing a Legitimate Expectation of Privacy in Clickstream Data, Gavin Skok
[32] The legitimate expectation of privacy test traditionally entails a two-part inquiry: (1) whether the defendant had an actual (subjective) expectation of privacy; and (2) whether society is prepared to recognize that expectation as reasonable.
The only court to thus far address expectations of privacy in clickstream data held that a Web user lacked an expectation of privacy in clickstream data generated while at work since he had notice that his Internet usage was being monitored.
Simons,[70] the Fourth Circuit considered whether an employee retained a legitimate expectation of privacy in records of his Internet use from work in light of a policy implemented by his employer, the Foreign Bureau of Information Services,[71] which warned employees that all Internet activity in the workplace would be monitored and recorded.
