In spite of this limitation, we often refer to the Utilitarian solution for the purpose of comparison and because it is a limit case, permitting the most utility substitution. The Utilitarian solution is obtained by maximizing the sum of utilities over the feasible set. Since we required solutions to associate with each problem a single point, we should specify what to do in case the sum of utilities is maximized at more than one point (having to include a tiebreaking rule in its definition is a second drawback of the solution).

Mon, which leads to a characterization of a variant of the Kalai-Smorodinsky solution. Although the extension of the definition of the Kalai-Smorodinsky solution to the Ai-person case itself causes no problem, the generalization of the preceding results to the Ai-person case is not as straightforward as was the case of the extensions of the results concerning the Nash solution from n = 2 to arbitrary n. o only. 5. The Egalitarian solution. ) This is not a serious limitation since, for most problems 5, K(S) in fact is (fully) Pareto optimal.

2 consists in defining x* equal to ceQ with c = (a + b)/2 instead of x* = aeQ. After verifying that T = cch{S°,S\S\x*} belongs to ££, the argument concludes as originally. The adjustment needed for the second construction is in the same spirit, although more complicated to describe. After S has been replicated (as before), the family (P* of subsets of Q different from P, all the Pi9 and any subset of these is introduced. For each P e (P*, let xp be the point of IR/5 that has all of its coordinates equal toe + (a- c)( | Q\-\P\)/( | Q\-\P\) if | P | > | P | and a + (l-a){\P\-\P\)/(\P\-l) if | P | < | P | .
