The prenucleolus for games with restricted cooperation


  • Katsev, Ilya
  • Yanovskaya, Elena


A game with restricted cooperation is a triple (N,v,Ω), where N is a finite set of players, Ω⊂2N is a nonempty collection of feasible coalitions such that N∈Ω, and v:Ω→R is a characteristic function. The definition implies that if Ω=2N, then the game (N,v,Ω)=(N,v) is the classical transferable utility (TU) cooperative game.
