Costly Nash paths

Yakar Kannai

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Maschler, Owen, and Peleg (in: The Shapley Value, Cambridge Univ. Press, 1988, pp. 321-330) suggested a dynamic system leading to the Nash bargaining set. Here we modify their system by introducing cost in the form of extra participants. The new dynamics is defined on an n + m dimensional bargaining set. We analyze the effect of cost on the final outcome both in general and in several particular cases.
