Abstract:

An n,m-game is an n-person game in which all coalitions with less than m players are not vital. A p-discriminatory solution to a game is a von Neumann-Morgenstern stable set solution in which some p players always receive fixed payoffs. In the paper, necessary and sufficient conditions are given for an arbitrary n,n-2-game to have a k-discriminatory solution. These conditions are used to characterize all 2-discriminatory solutions for 4-person games, and for the simple n,n-2-games in which all coalitions with at least n-2 players are winning coalitions.
