Abstract : It is of interest to the study of cooperative game theory to develop models whereby the dynamics of negotiation among the players can be investigated. One approach to this problem concentrates on the use of discrete transfer schemes to study how players might arrive at a desirable outcome. A parallel approach employs systems of differential equations whose solutions represent a continuous transfer of payoff over time. It is the intention of this work to further research in this latter area. Chapter headings include the following: Systems of differential equations with polyhedral stable sets; Applications to cooperative game theory; Nonefficient bargaining systems.
