A necessary and sufficient condition for non-emptiness of the core of a non-transferable utility game
It is well--known that a transferable utility game has a non-empty core if and only if it is balanced. In the class of non-transferable utility games balancedness or the more general pi-balancedness due to Billera (1970) is a sufficient, but not a necessary condition for the core to be non--empty. This paper gives a natural extension of the pi -balancedness condition that is both necessary and sufficient non--emptiness of the core.
