Abstract

In this paper we re-examine the partnership formation problem, which is a generalization of the classical assignment game. We show that the former problem can be transformed into the latter one in some sense; more precisely, we demonstrate that using an equilibrium in an associated assignment game, we can find an equilibrium in the partnership formation problem if it exists. Based on this, we devise an algorithm to compute an equilibrium of the partnership formation problem, and show that the proposed algorithm can be seen as a variant of the one by Andersson et al. (2014b).
