Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Multi-agent systems have applications in different areas such as transportation, computer networks, power systems, economics, logistics, and computer games. However, security threats need to be addressed in the design of multi-agent systems while maintaining their efficiency. For example, a malicious agent can cause a significant cost to the system by providing incorrect information to other agents. To address such security concerns, game theoretic solutions can be applied to improve agents’ learning processes. On the other hand, the analysis of cooperation between agents can lead to efficient social welfare by setting proper incentives for agents to satisfy incentive compatibility requirements. Considering the importance of the game theoretic analysis of multi-agent systems in different scenarios, this Special Issue of Games is dedicated to the advances in game theory, multi-agent systems, and computer security. We welcome authors to submit their research on topics including, but not limited to: game theory, mechanism design, multi-agent systems, reinforcement learning, and security games. Below, we list further keywords that may help to identify suitable topics for this Special Issue.

  • Multi-agent systems;
  • Multi-agent reinforcement learning;
  • Security games;
  • Information security;
  • Mechanism design;
  • Coalitional game.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Games is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).

Abstract
By considering the maximal efficacy among allocation vectors, we define two power indices under specific multicriteria conditions. Additionally, we introduce a reduction approach to the axiomatic framework for these power indices. Furthermore, we propose an alternative formulation that focuses on discrepancy mapping.

By considering the maximal efficacy among allocation vectors, we define two power indices under specific multicriteria conditions. Additionally, we introduce a reduction approach to the axiomatic framework for these power indices. Furthermore, we propose an alternative formulation that focuses on discrepancy mapping. Based on reduction and discrepancy mapping, we also provide two dynamic procedures. Full article
