Title: A Generic Approach to Coalition Formation
Date: Friday 23 November 2007
Time: 16:00
Location: P-3.27, Euclides Building, Plantage Muidergracht 24, Amsterdam

Abstract:
We propose an abstract approach to coalition formation that focuses on simple merge and split rules transforming partitions of a group of players. We identify conditions under which every iteration of these rules yields a unique partition. The main conceptual tool is a specific notion of a stable partition. The results are parametrized by a preference relation between partitions of a group of players and naturally apply to coalitional TU-games, hedonic games and exchange economy games.
