We investigate Pareto stability in Social Distance Games, that are coalition forming games in which agents utilities are proportional to their harmonic centralities in the respective coalitions, i.e., to the average inverse distance from the other agents. Pareto optimal solutions have been already considered in the literature as outcomes arising from the strategic interaction of the agents. In particular, they are stable under the deviation of the grand coalition, as they do not permit a… CONTINUE READING
