Variance decompositions for extensive-form games [article]

Alex Cloud, Eric Laber
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We treat the outcome of a game as a random variable and derive a closed-form expression and estimator for the variance in the outcome attributable to a player of the game.  ...  A simple example is given to demonstrate how variance decompositions can be used to measure other interesting properties of games.  ...  Variance decompositions for game outcomes Extensive-form games with random variables For convenience, we introduce random variables that represent the actions selected by players in a single play of  ...

Inequality decomposition values: the trade-off between marginality and efficiency

Frédéric Chantreuil, Alain Trannoy
2011 Journal of Economic Inequality  
The methods of decomposition proposed are based on the Shapley value and extensions of the Shapley value of transferable utility cooperative games.  ...  This paper presents a general procedure for decomposing income inequality measures by income sources.  ...  Shorrocks for a discussion which has revived our interest in this topic.  ...

Income inequality games

Arthur Charpentier, Stéphane Mussard
2011 Journal of Economic Inequality  
We also investigate the case of multiplicative poverty games for which indices are non additively decomposable in order to capture contributions of sub-indices, which are multiplicatively connected with  ...  We first investigate the problem of source decomposition of inequality measures, the so-called additive income sources inequality games, baed on the Shapley Value, introduced by Chantreuil and Trannoy  ...  For instance the natural decomposition of the variance (see the Introduction) yields, for source , an absolute natural contribution of cov(x , x) =: S . I(·) satisfies (UA) S y ≤ 0.  ...

Variance Allocation and Shapley Value

Riccardo Colini-Baldeschi, Marco Scarsini, Stefano Vaccari
2017 Methodology and Computing in Applied Probability  
Motivated by the problem of utility allocation in a portfolio under a Markowitz mean-variance choice paradigm, we propose an allocation criterion for the variance of the sum of n possibly dependent random  ...  The main result of this paper shows that in our particular case the Shapley value has a very simple form that can be easily computed.  ...  In the following we show that the characteristic function of the variance game respects their decomposition requirements.  ...

The evolution of altruism: Game theory in multilevel selection and inclusive fitness

Jeffrey A. Fletcher, Martin Zwick
2007 Journal of Theoretical Biology  
The model also suggests a simple interpretation of the Price selection decomposition and an alternative decomposition that is symmetrical and complementary to it.  ...  Although the prisoner's dilemma (PD) has been used extensively to study reciprocal altruism, here we show that the n-player prisoner's dilemma (NPD) is also central to two other prominent theories of the  ...  The resulting actual DQ for this run exactly matches the alt DQ W component given by the alternative decomposition.  ...

2021 arXiv   pre-print
We present a novel game-theoretic formulation of Non-Negative Matrix Factorization (NNMF), a popular data-analysis method with many scientific and engineering applications.  ...  The game-theoretic formulation is shown to have favorable scaling and parallelization properties, while retaining reconstruction and convergence performance comparable to the traditional Multiplicative  ...  Lillian Ratliff for helpful discussions.  ...

A note on the Sobol' indices and interactive criteria

Michel Grabisch, Christophe Labreuche
2017 Fuzzy sets and systems (Print)  
We also relate the latter to the Banzhaf interaction transform and compute the Sobol' indices for the 2-additive Choquet integral.  ...  We consider in this note another approach to define interaction, by using the Sobol' indices which are related to the analysis of variance of a multivariate model.  ...  A classical basis of R 2 N is the basis of the unanimity games. For any nonempty subset S ⊆ N , the unanimity game centered on S is the game defined by u S (T ) = 1, if T ⊇ S 0, otherwise .  ...
