Cardinal-Probabilistic Interaction Indices and their Applications: A Survey
Faculty of Economics, Fukushima University, 1, Kanayagawa, Fukushima 960-1296, Japan
The class of cardinal probabilistic interaction indices obtained as expected marginal interactions includes the Shapley, Banzhaf, and chaining interaction indices and the Möbius and co-Möbius transform so. We will survey cardinal-probabilistic interaction indices and their applications, focusing on axiomatic characterization of the class of cardinal-probabilistic interaction indices. We show that these typical cardinal-probabilistic interaction indices can be represented as the Stieltjes integrals with respect to choice-probability measures on [0,1]. We introduce a method for hierarchical decomposition of systems represented by the Choquet integral using interaction indices.
