Formation of new coalitional structures in voting games

  • O. L. Petrosian
Mathematical Game Theory and Applications


This paper is dedicated to analysis and solution of an extended voting game. According to the extension, a new player enters the voting game, seeking to maximize a power index (i.e., its component of the Shapley–Shubik value) under a given capital. By assumption, other players sell their stocks (in full or in part) to the new player without hindrance and any benefits gained.
