Cooperative grey games and the grey Shapley value

Ergun, S.
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm
This contribution is located in the common area of operational research and economics, with a close relation and joint future potential with optimization: game theory. We focus on collaborative game theory under uncertainty. This study is on a new class of cooperative games where the set of players is finite and the coalition values are interval grey numbers. An interesting solution concept, the grey Shapley value, is introduced and characterized with the properties of additivity, efficiency, symmetry and dummy player, which are straightforward generalizations of the corresponding properties in the classical cooperative game theory. The paper ends with a conclusion and an outlook to future studies.


An Axiomatization of the Interval Shapley Value and on Some Interval Solution Concepts
PALANCI, Osman; ALPARSLAN GÖK, Sırma Zeynep; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2014-06-27)
The Shapley value, one of the most common solution concepts in Operations Research applications of cooperative game theory, is defined and axiomatically characterized in different game-theoretical models. In this paper, we focus on the Shapley value for cooperative games where the set of players is finite and the coalition values are compact intervals of real numbers. In this study, we study the properties of the interval Shapley value on the class of size monotonic interval games, and axiomatically charact...
Understanding consumer innovativeness via theory of goal directed behavior: an investigation of factors affecting adoption of online games
Baybaş, Gülnur; Yılmaz, Cengiz; Department of Business Administration (2015)
This study aims to analyze the factors behind adoption of online games, using a theoretical foundation based mostly on the theory of goal-directed behavior and diffusion of innovations model. Factors affecting the adoption behavior are determined on the basis of the goal directed behavior theory, and differences between adopter categories of online game buyers are investigated by applying Rogers’ diffusion of innovations (DOI) theory. Online survey was conducted to reach target group by using social media a...
Cooperation under interval uncertainty
Alparslan-Goek, S. Zeynep; Miquel, Silvia; Tijs, Stef H. (2009-03-01)
In this paper, the classical theory of two-person cooperative games is extended to two-person cooperative games with interval uncertainty. The core, balancedness, superadditivity and related topics are studied. Solutions called psi(alpha)-values are introduced and characterizations are given.
Mutual relevance of investor sentiment and finance by modeling coupled stochastic systems with MARS
Kalayci, Betul; Ozmen, Ayse; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-08-01)
Stochastic differential equations (SDEs) rapidly become one of the most well-known formats in which to express such diverse mathematical models under uncertainty such as financial models, neural systems, behavioral and neural responses, human reactions and behaviors. They belong to the main methods to describe randomness of a dynamical model today. In a financial system, different kinds of SDEs have been elaborated to model various financial assets. On the other hand, economists have conducted research on s...
Inference of piecewise linear systems with an improved method employing jump detection
Selçuk, Ahmet Melih; Öktem, Hakan; Department of Scientific Computing (2007)
Inference of regulatory relations in dynamical systems is a promising active research area. Recently, most of the investigations in this field have been stimulated by the researches in functional genomics. In this thesis, the inferential modeling problem for switching hybrid systems is studied. The hybrid systems refers to dynamical systems in which discrete and continuous variables regulate each other, in other words the jumps and flows are interrelated. In this study, piecewise linear approximations are u...
