The GAME THEORY AND COMPUTATION GROUP has been founded with the aim of melting together two complementary aspects of the interactive decision making.
On one side, the aspect of studying and modeling interactive situations, on the other side the more applied issues of studying computational tools to deal with specific classes of problems.
The group is strongly interested in collaborations with other institutions; currently it has a convention with the laboratory Lamsade of the Université Paris Dauphine and with the Energy department of Politecnico di Milano, to share a co-financed Ph.D. grant. Every scholar/institution interested in having a joint project with us is very welcome.

Investment Cost Sharing for Rural Electrification
This study is motivated by the Sustainable Development Goal number 7: “Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”. To support rural electrification policies, we propose a model to allocate investment costs of a micro-grid among its users.
Starting from the LP-relaxation of a facility location problem, we show how introducing capacity constraints force us to use rationing rules to share the costs.
We propose a case study based on real data from an Indian rural village, where a group of farmers – 15 players – may want to share electric generators to pump water for irrigation purpose.
