Sequential Coalition Formation and the Core in the Presence of Externalities


  • Kóczy Lászlo à .



Bloch (1996) presents a novel method to solve cooperative games with externalities. When trying to relate this to classical approaches he could only present negative results. We elaborate on these problems, define a modification of Bloch''s model and show that its order-independent equilibria coincide with the (pessimistic) recursive core.
