An optimal bound to access the core in TU-games

Sylvain Béal (), Eric Rémila and Philippe Solal

Games and Economic Behavior, 2013, vol. 80, issue C, 1-9

Abstract: We show that the core of any n-player TU-game with a non-empty core can be accessed with at most n−1 blocks. It turns out that this bound is optimal in the sense there are TU-games for which the number of blocks required to access the core is exactly n−1.
