His scientific interests lie mostly in Econometrics, Expected utility hypothesis, Mathematical economics, Prospect theory and Subjective expected utility. His Econometrics study incorporates themes from Loss aversion, Actuarial science, Statistics, Risk aversion and Ambiguity aversion. His Expected utility hypothesis research integrates issues from Event, Generalization and Decision theory.

His Mathematical economics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Axiom and Probability measure. His research integrates issues of Comonotonicity, Risk aversion and Preference in his study of Prospect theory. His Subjective expected utility research includes elements of Structure and Maximization.

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mathematical economics, Expected utility hypothesis, Econometrics, Prospect theory and Ambiguity. His research investigates the link between Mathematical economics and topics such as Axiom that cross with problems in Revealed preference. His studies in Expected utility hypothesis integrate themes in fields like Generalization and State space.

The concepts of his Econometrics study are interwoven with issues in Event, Statistics, Measure and Time preference. His Prospect theory research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Loss aversion, Comonotonicity and Risk aversion. His work deals with themes such as Cognitive psychology and Incentive compatibility, which intersect with Ambiguity.

Peter P. Wakker spends much of his time researching Ambiguity, Mathematical economics, Expected utility hypothesis, Econometrics and Ambiguity aversion. He has included themes like Preference, Prospect theory, Regret and Von Neumann architecture in his Mathematical economics study. His study in Subjective expected utility and Von Neumann–Morgenstern utility theorem is carried out as part of his Expected utility hypothesis studies.

His work in the fields of Two-moment decision model overlaps with other areas such as Foundations of statistics. His studies deal with areas such as Neutrality, Knightian uncertainty and Rationality as well as Econometrics. His work in the fields of Ambiguity aversion, such as Ellsberg paradox, overlaps with other areas such as Natural and Stock market.

Peter P. Wakker mainly focuses on Ambiguity, Econometrics, Ambiguity aversion, Actuarial science and Decision theory. His Ambiguity research incorporates themes from Matching, Introspection, Social psychology and Expected utility hypothesis. His Expected utility hypothesis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Majority rule and Group decision-making.

In his research on the topic of Econometrics, Von Neumann–Morgenstern utility theorem, Prospect theory, Prior probability, Two-moment decision model and Subjective expected utility is strongly related with Predictive power. While the research belongs to areas of Ambiguity aversion, he spends his time largely on the problem of Knightian uncertainty, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Decision analysis. His work carried out in the field of Decision theory brings together such families of science as Welfare economics, Mathematical economics, Regret and Parametric statistics.
