A Characterization and Some Properties of the Banzhaf-Coleman-Dubey-Shapley Sensitivity Index
AbstractA sensitivity index quantifies the degree of smoothness with which it responds to fluctuations in the wishes of the members of a voting body. This paper characterizes the Banzhafï¾–Colemanï¾–Dubeyï¾–Shapley sensitivity index using a set of independent axioms. Bounds on the index for a very general class of games are also derived.
