Geometry on the Utility Space


We examine the geometrical properties of the space of expected utilities over a finite set of options, which is commonly used to model the preferences of an agent. We focus on the case where options are assumed to be symmetrical a priori. Specifically, we prove that the only Riemannian metric that respects the geometrical properties and the natural symmetries of the utility space is the round metric.
