El grup té una experiència de més de vint anys en el seu camp d’expertesa, la teoria de jocs i les seves aplicacions. El grup ha mantingut una línia creixent tant pel que fa a la producció científica contrastada com pel coneixement en l’àmbit. El grup és avui un referent internacional en àrees específiques com ara els sistemes de votació i els jocs cooperatius així com en les seves aplicacions: tecnològiques, econòmiques, polítiques i sociològiques.
Els seus treballs són matemàticament rigorosos i concisos, i els seus membres són bons coneixedors de l’àlgebra, la matemàtica discreta, la probabilitat, la complexitat o la computació. Nombroses situacions extretes de la vida quotidiana els han estimulat a modelitzar, simular i proposar propostes de solució o de millora.
Els seus membres comparteixen nombroses publicacions de prestigi, vetllen per la creixent internacionalització del grup, tenen cura de la formació i divulguen els seus treballs.

Research in the foundations and applications of game theory. The main theoretical lines are the following: (a) cooperative games and solution concepts; (b) collective decision-making mechanisms and power indices; (c) restrictions to cooperation; (d) multiplicity of alternatives; and (e) software. The areas of application include economics, political science, sociology, management, industrial scheduling and technologies such as cryptography and reliability.

    We study qualitative properties of the solutions of the system of partial differential equations modeling thermomechanical deformations for mixtures of thermoelastic solids when the theory of Green and Lindsay for the ...
  • A parameterization for a class of complete games with abstention 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Tchantcho, Bertrand; Proces Tsague, Bill (2019-02-28)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Voting games with abstention are voting systems in which players can cast not only yes and no vote, but are allowed to abstain. This paper centers on the structure of a class of complete games with abstention. We obtain, ...
  • Exponential stability in type III thermoelasticity with microtemperatures 

    Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2018-10)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper we consider the type III thermoelastic theory with microtemperatures. We study the time decay of the solutions and we prove that under suitable conditions for the constitutive tensors, the solutions decay ...
  • Satisfaction and power in unanimous majority influence decision models 

    Molinero Albareda, Xavier; Riquelme Csori, Fabián; Serna Iglesias, María José (2018-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We consider decision models associated with cooperative influence games, the oblivious and the non-oblivious influence models. In those models the satisfaction and the power measures were introduced and studied. We analyze ...
  • On the stability in phase-lag heat conduction with two temperatures 

    Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Miranville, Alain; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2018-06-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We investigate the well-posedness and the stability of the solutions for several Taylor approximations of the phase-lag two-temperature equations.We give conditions on the parameters which guarantee the existence and ...
  • On the thermoelasticity with two porosities: asymptotic behaviour 

    Bazarra, Noelia; Fernández, José Ramón; Leseduarte Milán, María Carme; Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2018-07-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this paper we consider the one-dimensional version of thermoelasticity with two porous structures and porous dissipation on one or both of them. We first give an existence and uniqueness result by means of semigroup ...
  • Analysis for the strain gradient theory of porous thermoelasticity 

    Fernández, José Ramón; Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Masid, Maria; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, we analyse a model involving a strain gradient thermoelastic rod with voids. Existence and uniqueness, as well as an energy decay property, are proved by means of the semigroup arguments. The variational ...
  • Combinatorial structures to construct simple games and molecules 

    Molinero Albareda, Xavier (2017-03-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    We connect three different topics: combinatorial structures, game theory and chemistry. In particular, we establish the bases to represent some simple games, defined as influence games, and molecules, defined ...
  • Coalition formation and stability 

    Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Carreras Escobar, Francisco (2018-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper aims to develop, for any cooperative game, a solution notion that enjoys stability and consists of a coalition structure and an associated payoff vector derived from the Shapley value. To this end, two concepts ...
  • The Shapley value analyzed under the Felsenthal and Machover bargaining model 

    Bernardi, Giulia; Freixas Bosch, Josep (2018-05-23)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In 1996, Felsenthal and Machover proposed a bargaining procedure for a valuable payoff in cooperative and simple games. They proved that the value underlying their bargaining scheme was the Shapley value by showing that ...
  • Bisemivalues for bicooperative games 

    Domènech Blázquez, Margarita; Giménez Pradales, José Miguel; Puente del Campo, María Albina (2018-02-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    We introduce bisemivalues for bicooperative games and we also provide an interesting characterization of this kind of values by means of weighting coefficients in a similar way as it was given for semivalues in the context ...
