    What are the common group tasks that people use in experiments?

    Does anyone know what are the common group tasks that people use in their experiments? Tasks where performance can be easily evaluated objectively? I found in literature Michigan State University Distributed Dynamic Decision Making (MSU-DDD), but could not find the modified version for research. Does anyone have this game or know other games that I can use in research? Thanks!

    The question seems to relate to what Thomas Kuhn call the "Disciplinary-Matrix" in normal science. This is referred to as a constellation of shared commitments, and are subject to revision in the face of anomalies. 

    It seems that if there is a common set of tasks, it must differ from paradigm to paradigm. Further, one may distinguish elements in the hardcore and protective belt of such a belief system. I recall that in the US military, when one discover some oil product for instance, one common task for the scientists is to run an API specific gravity test. And when such experiment is carried out, another common task is to record the barometric pressure in the room.

    In economics, a common Keynesian task during a crises would be to examine the economy for rigidities--interest inelasticity, fixed wages, liquidity traps. Similar examples can be made for the classical school, the monetarist school, and the Marxists school. So, it appears that a common set of tasks would be specialized to a discipline or sub-discipline. In science, one would consult say the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for the common tasks.

  • Surajit Borkotokey asked a question:
    Is anyone working on Network under Bi-cooperative framework?
    Bi-cooperative games are generalizations of voting games with abstention...Mathematically one can talk about Bi-cooperative networks however one needs a concrete example. I am trying to get one. If anybody is interested please share your experience.

    Dear Momo, let me know what is the goal of such a partition. What is the main problem? is there any link to players? to a social planner? ...

About Cooperative Games

In game theory, a cooperative game is a game where groups of players ("coalitions") may enforce cooperative behaviour, hence the game is a competition between coalitions of players, rather than between individual players. An example is a coordination game, when players choose the strategies by a consensus decision-making process.
