Gamson’s law and hedonic games
AbstractThis note adds one celebrated coalition formation game due to Gamson (Am Soc Rev 26:373–382 1961a,AmSoc Rev 26:565–573, 1961b) in the list of applications of the theory of hedonic games explored by Banerjee et al. (Soc Choice Welf 18:135–153, 2001) and Bogomolnaia and Jackson (Games Econ Behav 38: 204–230, 2002). We apply their results to study the original Gamson game and offer extensions both to a multi-dimensional characteristics space and to an infinite number of players.
