  • Manipulation in games with multiple levels of output 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Parker, Cameron (2015-12)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In (j,k)-games each player chooses amongst j ordered options and there are k possible outcomes. In this paper, we consider the case where players are assumed to prefer some outcomes to others, and note that when k>2 the ...
  • A method to calculate generalized mixed modified semivalues: application to the Catalan Parliament (legislature 2012-2016) 

    Giménez Pradales, José Miguel; Puente del Campo, María Albina (Springer, 2015-10-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We focus on generalized mixed modified semivalues, a family of 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 ...
  • Identifying optimal components in a reliability system 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Pons Vallès, Montserrat (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    The first step in a reliability optimization process is to make a reliability assessment for each component in the system. If this assessment is made in a qualitative way, by grouping together components with the same ...
  • Multinomial probabilistic values 

    Carreras Escobar, Francisco; Puente del Campo, María Albina (2015-11)
    Article

    Multinomial probabilistic values were introduced by one of us in reliability. Here we define them for all cooperative games and illustrate their behavior in practice by means of an application to the analysis of a political ...
  • Forms of representation for simple games: Sizes, conversions and equivalences 

    Molinero Albareda, Xavier; Riquelme Csori, Fabián; Serna Iglesias, María José (North Holland Mathematical Library, 2015-07-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Simple games are cooperative games in which the benefit that a coalition may have is always binary, i.e., a coalition may either win or loose. This paper surveys different forms of representation of simple games, and those ...
  • Measuring the relevance of factors in the occurrence of events 

    Fragnelli, Vito; Freixas Bosch, Josep; Pons Vallès, Montserrat; Sanmiquel Pera, Lluís (2014-05-09)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A new way to compare the relevance of the different factors intervening in the occurrences of an event is presented and developed in this paper. The idea behind the method comes from cooperative game theory but the focus ...
  • Success and decisiveness on proper symmetric games 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Pons Vallès, Montserrat (2013-11-20)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper provides a complete study for the possible rankings of success and decisiveness for individuals in symmetric voting systems, assuming anonymous and independent probability distributions. It is proved that for ...
  • On the time decay of solutions in micropolar viscoelasticity 

    Leseduarte Milán, María Carme; Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2015-07-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper deals with isotropic micropolar viscoelastic materials. It can be said that that kind of materials have two internal structures: the macrostructure, where the elasticity effects are noticed, and the ...
  • The golden number and Fibonacci sequences in the design of voting structures 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Kurz, Sascha (Elsevier, 2013)
    Article
    Open Access
    Some distinguished types of voters, as vetoes, passers or nulls, as well as some others, play a significant role in voting systems because they are either the most powerful or the least powerful voters in the game independently ...
  • Egalitarian property for power indices 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Marciniak, Dorota (Springer, 2013)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this study, we introduce and examine the Egalitarian property for some power indices on the class of simple games. This property means that after intersecting a game with a symmetric or anonymous game the difference ...
