CD: Concede-and-divide rule

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

Description

This function returns the awards vector assigned by the concede-and-divide (CD) rule to a two-claimant problem.

Usage

1
CD(E, d, name = FALSE)

Arguments

E

The endowment.

d

The vector of two claims.

name

A logical value.

Details

Let E≥ 0 be the endowment to be divided and d=(d1,d2) the vector of claims with d≥ 0 and such that the sum of the two claims exceeds the endowment d1+d2≥ E.

The concede-and-divide rule first assigns to each of the two claimants the difference between the endowment and the other agent’s claim (or 0 if this difference is negative), and divides the remainder equally.

CD1(E,d) = max{E-d2,0} + 1/2(E-max{E-d1,0}-max{E-d2,0})

CD2(E,d) = max{E-d1,0} + 1/2(E-max{E-d1,0}-max{E-d2,0})

Several rules are extensions of the concede-and-divide rule to general populations: AA, APRO, MO, RA, and Talmud.

Value

The awards vector selected by the CD rule. If name = TRUE, the name of the function (CD) as a character string.
