The problem of allocation in coalitional games with noisy observations and dynamic environments is considered. The evolution of the excess is modeled by a stochastic differential inclusion involving both deterministic and stochastic uncertainties. The main contribution is a set of linear matrix inequality conditions which guarantee that the distance of any solution of the stochastic differential inclusions from a predefined target set is second-moment bounded. As a direct consequence of the above result we derive stronger conditions still in the form of linear matrix inequalities to hold in the entire state space, which guarantee second-moment boundedness. Another consequence of the main result is conditions for convergence almost surely to the target set, when the Brownian motion vanishes in proximity of the set. As a further result we prove convergence conditions to the target set of any solution to the stochastic differential equation if the stochastic disturbance has bounded support. We illustrate the results on a simulated intelligent mobility scenario involving a transport network.
