A New Procedure to Calculate the Owen Value

José Miguel Giménez, María Albina Puente

Abstract

In this paper we focus on games with a coalition structure. Particularly, we deal with the Owen value, the coalitional value of the Shapley value, and we provide a computational procedure to calculate this coalitional value in terms of the multilinear extension of the original game.
