In Debreu (1954, 1959) some classical results were provided for consumer theory. Necessary and sufficient conditions were given for the existence of (con- tinuous) utility functions to represent preference relations of consumers. Further results are given in Bowen (1968), Jaffray (1975), Richter (1980), and Chateauneuf (1985).
