Rooted-tree solutions for tree games
In this paper, we study cooperative games with limited cooperation possibilities, represented by a tree on the set of agents. Agents in the game can cooperate if they are connected in the tree. We introduce natural extensions of the average (rooted)-tree solution (see [Herings, P., van der Laan, G., Talman, D., 2008. The average tree solution for cycle free games. Games and Economic Behavior 62, 77-92]): the marginalist tree solutions and the random tree solutions. We provide an axiomatic characterization of each of these sets of solutions. By the way, we obtain a new characterization of the average tree solution.
