The Potential of Multi-choice Cooperative Games


  • Hsiao, Chih-Ru
  • Yeh, Yeong-Nan
  • Mo, Jie-Ping


We defined the potential for multi-choice cooperative games, and found the relationship between the potential and the multi-choice Shapley value. Moreover, we show that the multi-choice Shapley is consistent.
