Focuses on the basic notions and facts of the cooperative game theory that provides a scientific approach to the problem of fair dividing of a given sum. Assumption that cooperation between any two coalitions is profitable; Information on the Shapley value that is given by a unique method that satisfies the three Shapley axioms; Calculation of the nucleolus of the game.

    We report the results of an experimental investigation of a key axiom of economic theories of dynamic decision making—namely, that agents plan. Inferences from previous investigations have been confounded with issues concerning the preference functionals of the agents. Here, we present an...

    We define and study games with upper bounds. In one of these games there are upper bounds on the possible payoffs for some coalitions. These restrictions require adjustments in the definitions of solution concepts. In the current paper we study the effect of the restrictions on the core and...

    When analyzing mathematically decision mechanisms ruled by voting it is sometimes convenient to include abstention as a possible alternative for the voters. In classical simple games, abstention, if considered, is formally equivalent to voting against the proposal. Simple games with alternatives...

    Using Pauly’s majority logic, a modal-like language that describes decisions of a collective of agents, this article develops an explicit relationship between logic and social choice theory, particularly judgement aggregation. Majority logic is, within certain limits, able to express...

    Cooperative games on antimatroids are cooperative games in which coalition formation is restricted by a combinatorial structure which generalizes permission structures. These games group several well-known families of games which have important applications in economics and politics. The current...

    Investigates the repair/replacement problem for a single unit system with random repair cost. When the unit fails, the repair cost is observed and a decision is made whether to replace the unit or repair it. Although the model in this article is formulated as a model of a single unit system, it...
