On the construction of high dimensional simple games
Olsen, Martin; Kurz, Sascha; Molinero Albareda, Xavier
Voting is a commonly applied method for the aggregation
of the preferences of multiple agents into a joint decision. If preferences are binary, i.e., “yes” and “no”, every voting system can be
described by a (monotone) Boolean function : f0; 1gn ! f0; 1g.
However, its naive encoding needs 2n bits. The subclass of threshold
functions, which is sufficient for homogeneous agents, allows
a more succinct representation using n weights and one threshold.
For heterogeneous agents one can represent as an intersection of k
threshold functions. Taylor and Zwicker have constructed a sequence
of examples requiring k 2 n2 ¿1 and provided a construction guaranteeingk ¿ n bn=2c 2 2n¿o(n). The magnitude of the worst case situation was thought to be determined by Elkind et al. in 2008, but the analysis unfortunately turned out to be wrong. Here we uncover a relation to coding theory that allows the determination of the minimum number k for a subclass of voting systems. As an application, we give a construction for k 2n¿o(n), i.e., there is no gain from a representation complexity point of view.

Components with higher and lower risk in a reliability system
Freixas Bosch, Josep; Pons Vallès, Montserrat
A new reliability importance measure for components in a system, that we
call Representativeness measure, is introduced. It evaluates to which extent the performance of a component is representative of the erformance of the whole system. Its relationship with Birnbaum’s measure is analyzed, and the ranking of components given by both measures are compared. These rankings happen to be equal when all components have the same reliability but different in general. In contrast with Birnbaum’s, the Representativeness reliability importance measure of a component does depend on its reliability.

Computational procedure for a wide family of mixed coalitional values
Giménez Pradales, José Miguel; Puente del Campo, María Albina
We consider a family of mixed coalitional values. They apply to games with a coalition structure by combining a (induced) semivalue in the quotient game, but share within each union the payoff so obtained by applying different (induced) semivalues to a game that concerns only the players of that union. A computation procedure in terms of the multilinear extension of the original game is provided.

Similarities and differences between success and decisiveness
Freixas Bosch, Josep; Pons Vallès, Montserrat
We consider binary voting systems in which a probability distribution
over coalitions is known. In this broader context decisiveness is
an extension of the Penrose-Banzhaf index and success an extension of the Rae index for simple games. Although decisiveness and success are conceptually different we analyze their numerical behavior. The main result provides necessary and sufficient conditions for the ordinal equivalence of them. Indeed, under anonymous probability distributions they become ordinally equivalent. Moreover, it is proved that for these distributions, decisiveness and success respect the strength of the seats, whereas luckiness reverses the order.

Cooperation tendencies and evaluation of games
Carreras Escobar, Francisco; Puente del Campo, María Albina
Multinomial probabilistic values were first introduced by one of us in reliability and later on by the other,
independently, as power indices. Here we study them on cooperative games from several viewpoints, and especially
as a powerful generalization of binomial semivalues. We establish a dimensional comparison between
multinomial values and binomial semivalues and provide two characterizations within the class of probabilistic
values: one for each multinomial value and another for the whole family. An example illustrates their use
in practice as power indices.

Nodes of directed graphs ranked by solutions defined on cooperative games
Amer Ramon, Rafael; Giménez Pradales, José Miguel; Magaña Nieto, Antonio
Hierarchical structures, transportation systems, communication networks and
even sports competitions can be modeled by means of directed graphs. Since
digraphs without a predefined game are considered, the main part of the work is
devoted to establish conditions on cooperative games so that they can be used
to measure accessibility to the nodes. Games that satisfy desirable properties
are called test games. Each ranking on the nodes is then obtained according
to a pair formed by a test game and a solution defined on cooperative games
whose utilities are given for every ordered coalition. Solutions here proposed
are extensions of the wide family of semivalues to games in generalized characteristic
function form.

Consorcios y valor de Shapley
Llongueras Arola, Maria Dolors; Magaña Nieto, Antonio
La coordindación de estrategias en un juego cooperativo, cuando un grupo de jugadores decide actuar en conjunto es la base de la noción de consorcio. Un consorcio en un juego cooperativo es una coalición que posee una estructura interna y, al mismo tiempo, se comporta como un miembro individual. En este trabajo se define el valor de consorcio de Shapley y se determinan expresiones para la diferencia entre el valor de Shapley de un jugador en el juego inicial y su valor de Shapleu en el juego de consorcio.

On the generalized decisiveness of decisive symmetric games
Carreras Escobar, Francisco; Freixas Bosch, Josep; Puente del Campo, María Albina
We study several functions related to the decisiveness of simple games. The analysis, including the asymptotic behavior as the number of players increases, is restricted to decisive symmetric games and their compositions, and it is assumed that all players share a common assessment of the proposal they are facing.
