The focus of this contribution is on the transformation of objective probability, which in Prospect Theory is commonly referred as probability weighting. Empirical evidence suggests a typical inverse-S shaped function: decision makers tend to overweight small probabilities, and underweight medium and high probabilities; moreover, the probability weighting function is initially concave and then convex. We apply different parametric weighting functions proposed in the literature to the evaluation of derivative contracts and to insurance premium principles.
