Researches of the validity of the representation of risks in the vector Euclidean space establishedResearches of the validity of the representation of risks in the vector Euclidean space establishedthe correctness of the axioms of the Euclidean space to represent the vectors of objective and subjectiverisks in it. Thus, there is reason to assert about the possibility of representing risks in a vectorEuclidean space, which allows us to represent the risk as a complex number. This opens upprospects for building models of behavior with risks based on the application of the apparatus ofthe theory of functions of a complex variable.
