    We introduce one-way games, a two-player framework whose distinguishable feature is that the private payoff of one (independent) player is determined only by her own strategy and does not depend on the actions taken by the other (dependent) player. We show that the equilibrium outcome in one-way...

    This paper, presents a model in which players interact via the formation of costly links and the benefits of bilateral interactions are determined by a stag-hunt game. A novel contribution of this paper is that the fraction of the cost borne by each player involved in a bilateral link is not...

    We provide new characterizations of the egalitarian bargaining solution on the class of strictly comprehensive n-person bargaining problems. The main axioms used in all of our results are Nash's IIA and disagreement point monotonicity-an axiom which requires a player's payoff to strictly...

  • All in good time. Heifetz, Aviad; Ponsati, Clara // International Journal of Game Theory;2007, Vol. 35 Issue 4, p521 

    Why is issue-by-issue bargaining a common phenomenon, even though it disallows the beneficial trade-offs across issues that are possible when negotiating a global solution? We show that under asymmetric information, issue-by-issue bargaining has two attractive features. First, it avoids bundling...

    This paper explores the discrete-time game-theoretic model associated with a bioresource management problem (fish catching). The game engages players (countries or fishing firms) that harvest fish stocks on the infinite horizon. The paper aims at defining the cooperative payoff under different...

  • How long to Pareto efficiency? Babichenko, Yakov // International Journal of Game Theory;Feb2014, Vol. 43 Issue 1, p13 

    We consider uncoupled dynamics (each player knows only his own payoff function) that reach outcomes that are Pareto efficient and individually rational. We show that in the worst case the number of periods it takes to reach these outcomes must be exponential in the number of players and hence...

    Abstract. Strategic delay and restricted offers are two modes of signaling bargaining power in alternating offers bargaining games. This paper shows that when both modes are available, the best signaling strategy of the "strong" type of the informed player consists of a pure strategic delay...

    The literature's guidance on appraising easement values is limited, such as the sometimes unworkable advice to locate appropriate comparables. A simple economic analysis involving applications at bargaining theory (splitting a cooperative surplus) and game theory (anticipating other parties'...
