The Shapley value is shown to exist even when there are essential non differentiabilities on the diagonal. 
The Shapley Value
The purpose of this chapter is to present an important solution concept for cooperative games, due to Lloyd S. Shapley (Shapley (1953)). In the first part, we will be looking at the transferableExpand
Monotonicity and the Aumann-Shapley cost-sharing method in the discrete case
We give an axiomatization of the Aumann–Shapley cost-sharing method in the discrete case by means of monotonicity and no merging or splitting (Sprumont, 2005). Monotonicity has not yet been employedExpand
Power and public goods
Abstract A game-theoretic analysis using the Harsanyi-Shapley nontransferable utility value indicates that the choice of public goods in a democracy is not affected by who has voting rights. This isExpand
On the Discrete Version of the Aumann-Shapley Cost-Sharing Method
Each agent in a finite set requests an integer quantity of an idiosyncratic good; the resulting total cost must be shared among the participating agents. The Aumann-Shapley prices are given by theExpand
Values of perfectly competitive economies
Perfectly competitive economies are economic models with many agents, each of whom is relatively insignificant. This chapter studies the relations between the basic economic concept of competitiveExpand
On the symmetry axiom for values of nonatomic games
In this paper, a weaker version of the Symmetry Axiom on BV, and values on subspaces of BV are discussed. Included are several theorems and examples.

We show that a single-valued solution of non-atomic finite-type market games (or perfectly competitive TU economies underlying them) is uniquely determined as the Mertens value by four plausibleExpand
Addendum: The Shapley value of a perfectly competitive market may not exist
A counter-example for the existence of the Shapley value of non-differentiable perfectly competitive Walrasian (i.e., pure exchange) economies is given. The model used is that of a non-atomicExpand
Cost sharing: the nondifferentiable case
We show existence and uniqueness of a cost allocation mechanism, satisfying standard axioms, on two classes of cost functions with major nondifferentiabilities. The first class consists of convexExpand
Aumann-Shapley Pricing : A Reconsideration of the Discrete Case
We reconsider the following cost-sharing problem: agent i = 1, ...,n demands a quantity xi of good i; the corresponding total cost C(x1, ..., xn) must be shared among the n agents. The Aumann-ShapleyExpand


Value on a class of non-differentiable market games
We prove the existence of a (unique) Aumann-Shapley value on the space on non-atomic gamesQn generated byn-handed glove games. (These are the minima ofn non-atomic mutually singular probabilityExpand

The idea of “marginal contribution” is best captured in the game theoretic concept of value. The relation between it and the usual economic equilibrium can be stated as the following Value Principle:Expand
Values of Non-Atomic Games
The "Shapley value" of a finite multi- person game associates to each player the amount he should be willing to pay to participate. This book extends the value concept to certain classes ofExpand

An averaging process is used to reinterpret and then prove the diagonal formula for much larger spaces of games, including spaces in which the games cannot be considered differentiable and may even have jumps (e.g., voting games). Expand
