Abstract:

Gately 1974 and Littlechild and Vaidya 1976 defined and studied ratio measures of disruption propensity of coalitions in an n-person game. The authors define and study new incremental measures giving rise to a wide variety of disruption solution concepts free of various ratio defects and affording advantages of analysis and acceptability in terms of solution specifications. Various mollifier and homomollifier solution concepts are characterized which appear to be of promising utility. Author
