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.

Recent Submissions

  • Games with multiple alternatives applied to voting systems 

    Blasco Ruiz, Joan; Molinero Albareda, Xavier (Springer, 2020-02)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We describe voting mechanisms to study voting systems as well as electoral systems and parliamentary organizations. These mechanisms are base on the so-called power indices of simple games with alternatives. The classical ...
  • A value for j-cooperative games: some theoretical aspects and applications 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep (CRC Press, 2019-12-06)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A value that has all the ingredients to be a generalization of the Shapley value is proposed for a large class of games called j-cooperative games which are closely related to multi-choice games. When it is restricted to ...
  • A probabilistic unified approach for power indices in simple games 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Pons Vallès, Montserrat (Springer, 2019-11-01)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Many power indices on simple games have been defined trying to measure, under different points of view, the “a priori” importance of a voter in a collective binary voting scenario. A unified probabilistic way to define ...
  • The Banzhaf value for cooperative and simple multichoice games 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep (2020-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This article proposes a value which can be considered an extension of the Banzhaf value for cooperative games. The proposed value is defined on the class of j-cooperative games, i.e., games in which players choose among a ...
  • Numerical analysis of a dual-phase-lag model involving two temperatures 

    Bazarra, Noelia; Fernández, José Ramón; Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2019-12-27)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, we numerically analyse a phase-lag model with two temperatures which arises in the heat conduction theory. The model is written as a linear partial differential equation of third order in time. The variational ...
  • A problem with viscoelastic mixtures: numerical analysis and computational experiments 

    Fernández, José Ramón; Masid, Maria; Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2019-12-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, we study, from the numerical point of view, a dynamic problem involving a mixture of two viscoelastic solids. The mechanical problem is written as a system of two coupled partial differential equations. Its ...
  • On the linear thermoelasticity with two porosities: numerical aspects 

    Bazarra, Noelia; Fernández, José Ramón; Leseduarte Milán, María Carme; Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2019-10-30)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this work we analyze, from the numerical point of view, a dynamic problem involving a thermoelastic rod. Two porosities are considered: the first one is the macro-porosity, connected with the pores of the material, and ...
  • On the time decay in phase-lag thermoelasticity with two temperatures 

    Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Miranville, Alain; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (AMER INST MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES-AIMS, 2019-09-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this paper is to study the time decay of the solutions for two models of the one-dimensional phase-lag thermoelasticity with two temperatures. The first one is obtained when the heat flux vector and the inductive ...
  • Exponential stability in three-dimensional type III thermo-porous-elasticity with microtemperatures 

    Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (2019-09-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    We study the time decay of the solutions for the type III thermoelastic theory with microtemperatures and voids. We prove that, under suitable conditions for the constitutive tensors, the solutions decay exponentially. ...
  • The neighborhood role in the linear threshold rank on social networks 

    Riquelme Csori, Fabián; Gonzalez Cantergiani, Pablo; Molinero Albareda, Xavier; Serna Iglesias, María José (2019-08-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Centrality and influence spread are two of the most studied concepts in social network analysis. Several centrality measures, most of them, based on topological criteria, have been proposed and studied. In recent years new ...

    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In the last years, a big interest has been developed to understand the time decay of solutions for the porous thermoelasticity with different thermal mechanisms. We here want to consider the problem of the one-dimensional ...
  • An axiomatization for two power indices for (3,2)-simple games 

    Bernardi, Giulia; Freixas Bosch, Josep (2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The aim of this work is to give a characterization of the Shapley–Shubik and the Banzhaf power indices for (3,2)-simple games. We generalize to the set of (3,2)-simple games the classical axioms for power indices on simple ...
