Abstract

A new family of cost sharing rules for cost sharing problems is proposed. This family generalizes the family of \(\alpha \)-serial cost sharing rules (Albizuri in Math Soc Sci 60:24–29, 2010) which contains the serial cost sharing rule (Moulin and Shenker in Econometrica 60:1009–1037, 1992) among others. Every rule of the family is characterized by means of two properties.
