Abstract

In the last chapter of this book, we consider questions related to the formation of networks in cases where a reward function gives the value of each network. As we saw in section 4.5, reward functions allow us to model situations in which the value that can be obtained by a group of players does not depend solely on whether they are connected or not, but also on exactly how they are connected to each other.
