Coalitional stability and rationality in cooperative games

Anton Stefanescu


We propose a new solution concept which characterizes stable agreements in cooperative games. Although it is a refinement of an earlier solution concept introduced by McKelvey, Ordeshook and Winer [6], there are some similitudes with other solutions of cooperative games. The new concept may be defined both for transferable and non-transferable utility games and it is shown that it exists for very large classes of games.
