Summary: Stability arises as the consistency criterion in a betting interpretation for hyperreal imprecise previsions, that is imprecise previsions (and probabilities) which may take infinitesimal values. The purpose of this work is to extend the notion of stable coherence introduced in [the second author et al., Int. J. Approx. Reasoning 54, No. 5, 573–589 (2013; Zbl 1316.03009)] to conditional hyperreal imprecise probabilities. Our investigation extends the de Finetti-Walley operational characterisation of (imprecise) prevision to conditioning on events which are considered “practically impossible“ but not “logically impossible”.
