FEN-Hedonic Games with Distance-Based Preferences [article]

Anja Rey
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Hedonic games formalize coalition formation scenarios where players evaluate an outcome based on the coalition they are contained in.  ...  We complement known compact representation models by a distance-based approach: Players' preferences are encoded in a bipolar manner by ordinal preferences over a small set of known neighbouring players  ...  Hedonic games with distance-based preferences satisfy nonimposition.  ...

Thou Shalt Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself When Thou Playest: Altruism in Game Theory

Jörg Rothe
2021 AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence

Altruism in Coalition Formation Games

Anna Maria Kerkmann, Jörg Rothe
2020 Proceedings of the Twenty-Ninth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
Nguyen et al. [2016] introduced altruistic hedonic games in which agents' utilities depend not only on their own preferences but also on those of their friends in the same coalition.  ...  Comparing the two models, we argue that excluding some friends from the altruistic behavior of an agent is a major disadvantage that comes with the restriction to hedonic games.  ...  Based on altruistic hedonic games [Nguyen et al., 2016] , Schlueter and Goldsmith [2018] defined super altruistic hedonic games, related to social distance games due to Brânzei and Larson [2011] ,  ...

Altruistic Hedonic Games

2022 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
For a long time, all models of representing hedonic games were based upon selfish players only.  ...  Hedonic games are coalition formation games in which players have preferences over the coalitions they can join.  ...  In particular, the preferences considered in Example 5.1 cannot be expressed in additively separable hedonic games, fractional hedonic games, hedonic games with B-or Wpreferences, or FEN-hedonic games.  ...

Topological Influence and Locality in Swap Schelling Games [article]

Davide Bilò and Vittorio Bilò and Pascal Lenzner and Louise Molitor
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In these games, agents can improve on their current location by performing a location swap with another agent who is willing to swap.  ...  Very recently, Schelling's model has been investigated from a game-theoretic point of view with selfish agents that strategically select their residential location.  ...  Another interesting line of study is to analyze the Jump Schelling Game with respect to varying underlying graphs and locality.  ...
