Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

37 Scopus citations


We prove some properties of simple games with a complete desirability relation, and investigate the relationships between the desirability of a simple game G and that of some simple games that are derived from G. We also provide an example of a proper simple game that has a complete and acyclic desirability relation but is not a weighted majority game.
