The Folk Rule for Minimum Cost Spanning Tree Problems with Multiple Sources
Eunju Lee and
MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany
We consider a problem where a group of agents is interested in some goods provided by a supplier with multiple sources. To be served, each agent should be connected directly or indirectly to all sources of the supplier for a safety reason. This problem generalizes the classical minimum cost spanning problem with one source by allowing the possibility of multiple sources. In this paper, we extend the definitions of the folk rule to be suitable for minimal cost spanning tree problems with multiple sources and present its axiomatic characterizations.
