Equal-need sharing of a network under connectivity constraints


  • Moulin, Herve
  • Laigret, Francois


We propose a simple division of the costs of non-rival resources, when a user's need can be met by different subsets of the resources, and no resource is redundant. Our method is characterized by the Stand Alone core property, additivity in costs, and a symmetry requirement.
