Abstract

We focus on the radial serial rule as a natural extension of the Moulin-Shenker cost sharing rule. We show that it is the unique regular rule that is compatible with the radial serial principle. In particular this shows the incompatability of the serial prionciple with differentiability of a cost sharing rule as a function of the individual demands.
