An Overview of Coalitions and Networks Formation Models for Economic Applications

  • Marco A. Marini

    (Department of Economics, University of Urbino, Urbino, (Italy))

This paper presents some recent developments in the theory of coalition and network formation. For this purpose, a few major equilibrium concepts recently introduced to model the formation of coalition structures and networks among players are brie?y reviewed and discussed. Some economic applications are also illustrated to give the ?avour of the type of predictions such models are able to provide.
