Abstract

In this paper we propose a novel approach to represent coalitional games, called a Coalition-Flow Network (CF-NET), that builds upon a generalization of the network flow literature. Specifically, this representation is based on our observation that the coalition formation process can be viewed as the problem of directing the flow through a network where every edge has certain capacity constraints.
