Choice under risk is modelled using a piecewise linear version of rank-dependent utility. This model can be considered a continuous version of NEO-expected utility (Chateauneuf, Eichberger and Grant, 2007). In a framework of objective probabilities a preference foundation is given, without requiring a rich structure on the outcome set. The key axiom is called complementary additivity.
