Optimal Coalition Structure Generation In Partition Function Games

  title={Optimal Coalition Structure Generation In Partition Function Games},
  author={Tomasz P. Michalak and Andrew James Dowell and Peter McBurney and Michael Wooldridge},
1 In multi-agent systems (MAS), coalition formation is typically studied using characteristic function game (CFG) representations, where the performance of any coalition is independent from co-existing coalitions in the system. However, in a number of environments, there are significant externalities from coalition formation where the effectiveness of one coalition may be affected by the formation of other distinct coalitions. In such cases, coalition formation can be modeled using partition… CONTINUE READING
