3. 1, a voting rule can be specified by the set of seats N = {1, 2, . . , n} and the set W ⊆ 2N of winning vote configurations, that is, those that can make a decision. So the simple TU game vW can be associated with each voting rule W, defined by vW (S) := 1, if S ∈ W 0, if S ∈ / W. (9) In [78] Shapley and Shubik propose the Shapley value of the associated simple game as an ‘a priori evaluation of the division of power among the various bodies and members of a legislature or committee system’. Since then the Shapley value of game vW for each i ∈ N has been known as the Shapley–Shubik index.
