A Review on Liao’s Dissertation Entitled “The Solutions on Multi-choice Games” and Related Publications

By Chih-Ru Hsiao


In 2007, Liao finished his Ph.d. dissertation[18](Liao 2007) entitled “The Solutions on Multi-choice Games”. Chapter 1 of the dissertation mainly worked on two special cases of the H&R multi-choice Shapley value. One assumes that the weight function w(j) is a positive constant function for all j 6= 0 with w(0) = 0 and the other one assumes that the weight function w(j) = j for all j. If w(j) ’s are equal for all j > 0 then the formula of H&R multi-choice Shapley value can be significantly simplified to the original formula of the traditional Shapley value for the traditional games. Therefore, as a matter of fact, Definitions 1 and 2 in Chapter 1 of the dissertation [18] are simply the traditional Shapley value. Hence, in most part of Chapter 1, Liao was just writing “new results” of traditional games in terms of the notations of multi-choice games. Furthermore, the dissertation [18] did not cited [7](1994), [8](1995a) and [10](1996) which held the original ideas of its main part of chapter 1.
