Transportation interval situations and related games

Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm
Basically, uncertainty is present in almost every real-world situation, it is influencing and questioning our decisions. In this paper, we analyze transportation interval games corresponding to transportation interval situations. In those situations, it may affect the optimal amount of goods and consequently whether and how much of a product is transported from a producer to a retailer. Firstly, we introduce the interval Shapley value of a game arising from a transportation situation under uncertainty. Secondly, a one-point solution concept by using a one-stage producere depending on the proportional, the constrained equal awards and the constrained equal losses rule is given. We prove that transportation interval games are interval balanced (I-balanced). Further, the nonemptiness of the interval core for the transportation interval games and some results on the relationship between the interval core and the dual interval optimal solutions of the underlying transportation situations are also provided. Moreover, we characterize the interval core using the square operator and addressing two scenarios such as pessimistic and optimistic.

Uncertainty accompanies almost every situation in our lives and it influences our decisions. On many occasions uncertainty is so severe that we can only predict some upper and lower bounds for the outcome of our (collaborative) actions, i.e., payoffs lie in some intervals. Cooperative interval games have been proved useful for solving reward/cost sharing problems in situations with interval data in a cooperative environment. In this paper we propose two procedures for cooperative interval games. Both transf...
Dynamical aspects of decision making under uncertainty
Taşkın, Kemal; Gökçay, Didem; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2016)
Decision making is defined as the mental process of choosing among a set of alternatives. Although several aspects of decision making have been investigated so far in cognitive science, dynamics of this process as a whole remained to be studied in detail. In this context, we investigated the effects of consecutive decisions on the current decision in a decision making task under uncertainty. In the attempt of elaborating these effects, we analyzed responses of participants to risky choices in two experiment...
Rational choice theory: its merits and limits in explaining and predicting cultural behavior
Kılınç Adanalı, Yurdagül; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2016)
The main goal of this dissertation is to examine whether instrumental rationality can predict and explain successfully human behavior in all walks of life. I have chosen Rational Choice Theory and Public Choice Theory as the focus of my investigation, since they are considered as the best models of instrumental rationality in philosophy and social sciences, and in particular in economics and politics. To see their merits and to determine their limits, I have applied Rational Choice Theory and Public Choice ...
Cooperative grey games and the grey Shapley value
PALANCI, Osman; PALANCI, Osman; Ergun, S.; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2015-08-03)
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 d...
Husserl's conception of intentionality phenomenological analysis of noesis and noema
Gözetlik, Servet; İnam, Ahmet; Department of Philosophy (2003)
Husserl̕s phenomenology can be analyzed simply by relying on the conception of intentionality. What I want to do is to put forward the logical grounds on which I can construct an acceptable account of Husserl̕s theory of intentionality. For this aim, firstly, I need to put some light on the nature of intentional acts or experiences.This suggests us that there is a close connection between the acts and what they are directed towards. Actually many have specified the relation between the act and the object, b...
