Sharing a Risky Cake

Author

Abstract

Consider an n-person Nash Bargaining problem where players bargain over the division of a cake whose size is stochastic. In such a game, the players are not only bargaining for more cake, but they are also sharing risk. This paper examines and provides the solution to this problem and highlights a few special cases.
