Abstract

The objective of this paper is to provide a general view of the literature of applications of transferable utility cooperative games to cost allocation problems. This literature is so large that we concentrate on some relevant contributions in three specific areas: transportation, natural resources and power industry. We stress those applications dealing with costs and with problems arisen outside the academic world.
