This study considers a supply chain that consists of n retailers, each of them facing a newsvendor problem, and a supplier. Groups of retailers might increase their expected joint profit by joint ordering and inventory centralization. However, we assume that the retailers impose some level of stock that should be dedicated to them. In this situation, we show that the associated cooperative game has a non-empty core. Afterwards, we concentrate on a dynamic situation, where several model cost parameters and the retailers' dedicated stock levels can change. We investigate how the profit division might be affected by these changes. We focus on four monotonicity properties. We identify several classes of games with retailers, where some of the monotonicity properties hold. Moreover, we show that pairs of cooperative games associated with newsvendor situations do not necessarily satisfy these properties in general, when changes in dedicated stock levels are in concern. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

Erol, Selman (Bilkent University, 2009)In this thesis, we investigate several issues concerning the class of Maskin monotonic social choice rules. Firstly, given a set of profiles, we find out which Maskin monotonic social choice rules adopt this set as a ...
Pasin, Pelin (Bilkent University, 2009)In this thesis we study the implementation problem with regard to the relation between monotonicity and implementability. Recent work in the field has shown that the implementability of a social choice rule strongly ...
Doğan, Battal (Bilkent University, 2007)Due to Maskin (1977), Maskin-monotonicity is known to be a necessary condition for Nash-implementability. Once one classifies social choice rules as the ones which are Maskin-monotonic and those which are not, a ...
