Edith Elkind, Judy Goldsmith, Anja Rey, and Jörg Rothe. Coalition Formation Games (Dagstuhl Seminar 21331). In Dagstuhl Reports, Volume 11, Issue 7, pp. 1-15, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2021)


There are many situations in which individuals will choose to act as a group, or coalition. Examples include social clubs, political parties, partnership formation, and legislative voting. Coalition formation games are a class of cooperative games where the aim is to partition a set of agents into coalitions, according to some criteria, such as coalitional stability or maximization of social welfare. In our seminar we discussed applications, results, and new directions of research in the field of coalition formation games.
