FUQs about IGDT
This is a very interesting and highly politically correct issue, yet an issue that must be addressed. In another words, it is time to raise questions about IGDT that have never been discussed in public, and/or have never been answered satisfactorily.
A number of obvious, and non-sensitive, FUQs come immediately to mind, and will be discussed here in detail:
- Since IGDT Robustness is a reinvention of the well known concept Radius of Stability (circa 1962), on what basis was it claimed at the time (2001) that the theory was "new" and "radically different" from all current theories for decision making under severe uncertainty?
- Since there are easily accessible, straight forward, formal, rigorous proofs that IGDT robustness model and IGT decision model are maximin models, why do prominent IGDT scholars continue to claim that IGDT is not a maximin theory?
- Given that IGDT robustness analysis is so clearly a (local) worst-case analysis, why do prominent IGDT scholars still insist that IGDT robustness analysis in not a worst-case analysis?
- Why so many IGDT publications, including books and peer reviewed articles, completely ignore well documented and easily accessible publications that are critical of the theory?
At this stage, let us leave this issue at that. The purpose of this page is simply to advise the reader that we definitely plan to pose some Frequently Unasked Questions about IGDT and discuss them in detail.
