Merging and splitting in cooperative games: some (im)possibility results
Allocation rules for cooperative games can be manipulated by coalitions merging into single players, or, conversely, players splitting into a number of smaller units. This paper collects some (im)possibility results on merging- and splitting-proofness of (core) allocation rules for cooperative games with side-payments. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2012
