  • 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 ...
  • On the exponential decay of solutions in dual-phase-lag porous thermoelasticity 

    Fernández, José Ramón; Magaña Nieto, Antonio; Quintanilla de Latorre, Ramón (Springer, 2019-06-03)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    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 equivalent formulation for the Shapley value 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep (Springer, 2018-12-30)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    An equivalent explicit formula for the Shapley value is provided, its equivalence with the classical one is proven by double induction. The importance of this new formula, in contrast to the classical one, is its capability ...
  • Preorders in simple games 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Pons Vallès, Montserrat (Springer, 2017)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Any power index defines a total preorder in a simple game and, thus, induces a hierarchy among its players. The desirability relation, which is also a preorder, induces the same hierarchy as the Banzhaf and the Shapley ...
  • On the characterization of weighted simple games 

    Freixas Bosch, Josep; Freixas Boleda, Marc; Kurz, Sascha (2017-12)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    This paper has a twofold scope. The first one is to clarify and put in evidence the isomorphic character of two theories developed in quite different fields: on one side, threshold logic, on the other side, simple games. ...
  • Pure bargaining problems and the Shapley rule 

    Carreras Escobar, Francisco; Owen Salazar, Guillermo (Springer, 2013)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The developments over a thirty-year time span in the study of power, especially voting power, are traced in this book, which provides an up-to-date overview of applications of n-person game theory to the study of power in ...
