Stabilizing Power Sharing

Steven J. Brams, D. Marc Kilgour
2007 Social Science Research Network  
Can our models be extended to n-person power-sharing games, starting with truels, or 3-person extensions of duels (Kilgour and Brams, 1997; Bossert, Brams, and Kilgour, 2002) ?  ...  Failures of either command and control or political will were a constant concern, making the doomsday machines at best probabilistic (Brams, 1985, p. 36; Brams and Kilgour, 1988, pp. 50-52) .  ...
