Coalition-Flow Networks: Generalised Network Flows for Coalition Games

Type of Event:
Kolloquium Angewandte Informatik

In this talk we detail a Generalised Network Flow representation for Coalition Games, CF-NETs. Specific ally, this representation is based on the 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. We show that our new way of representing this process is intuitive, fully expressive, and allows for representing certain patterns in a significantly more concise manner compared to the conventional approach. Furthermore, we show that CF-NETs have the capability to represent different classes of games, namely characteristic function games, coalitional games with overlapping coalitions, and coalitional games with identical agents.
