Characteristic functions for cooperative interval games

référence BibTeX

We extend the \(\alpha\) and \(\beta\) characteristic functions (CFs) to cooperative interval games, which constitute an interesting class of games to account for uncertainty and vagueness in decision-making processes. Both characteristic functions are based on a solution of zero-sum interval games when a coalition is the maximizer player and the anti coalition is the minimizer player. We propose an algorithm to define the interval values of a cooperative game in the form of \(\alpha\) and\(\beta\) CFs and demonstrate them on an example of a three-person game. Further, we discuss some properties of cooperative interval games and calculate an interval Shapley value. Numerical examples show that the cooperative solution depends on the way we construct a CF to define a cooperative interval game.
