##### Abstract

We consider the decision-making situation of choosing between elements of a
given set of random variables. The concepts of efficient sets and mean-risk
models are introduced. There is special focus on discrete random variables
with probabilities fixed.

Mean-risk models are discussed with respect to preservation of convexity
and stochastic dominance consistency. Interpretations are made in terms of
the geometry of the disperson space and its dual.
