On proportional excess for NTU games
AbstractAn axiomatic approach is developed to define the ”proportional excess” on the space of positively generated NTU games. This excess generalizes to NTU games the proportional TU excess v(S)/x(S). Five axioms are proposed, and it is shown that the proportional excess, which possess Kalai’s properties except the boundary condition (it equals 1, rather than 0), is the unique excess function satisfying the axioms. The properties of proportional excess and related solutions are studied. In particular, for the proportional (pre)nucleolus a geometric characterization, which modifies the Maschler-Peleg-Shapley geometric characterization of the standard TU nucleolus, is given.
