TL;DR: The method endorsed here regards the problem as one of rights arbitration in which the division is based on interpreting the applicable rules, rather than on weighing the parties' powers and possible benefits.
Abstract: A man dies leaving certain amounts of his estate to each of his sons, but the amounts sum to more than the total available. Various solutions are discussed, some based in the theory of games. The method endorsed here regards the problem as one of rights arbitration in which the division is based on interpreting the applicable rules, rather than on weighing the parties' powers and possible benefits.

TL;DR: When court trials (or arbitration) are the mechanism for resolving bargaining impasses, the costs and risks associated with third-party intervention should motivate people to negotiate and reach settlements as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: When court trials (or arbitration) are the mechanisms for resolving bargaining impasses, the costs and risks associated with third-party intervention should motivate settlement (Henry Farber and Harry Katz, 1979) However, empirical evidence suggests that impasses and inefficient settlements are common in the legal system and in contract negotiations For example, one study of asbestos suits found that only 37 cents of every dollar spent by both sides end up in the plaintiffs' hands (James Kakalik et al, 1983)

TL;DR: A novel action selection theory is presented which allows arbitration among goals and actions while producing fast and robust activity in a tight interaction loop with the environment.
Abstract: This paper discusses the problem of action selection for an autonomous agent. We argue that the so-called ''situated agents'', which have been built in response to the limitations observed with classical planners, do not provide a satisfactory solution to this problem because of their lack of goals and run-time arbitration. We present a novel action selection theory which allows arbitration among goals and actions while producing fast and robust activity in a tight interaction loop with the environment. The theory models action slection as an emergent property of an activation/inhibition dynamics among the actions the agent can select and between the actions and the environment. A handful of global parameters make it possible to smoothly mediate between several action selection criteria. For example, one can balance goal-orientedness against situation-orientedness, bias towards ongoing plans (inertia) against adaptivity, thoughtfulness against speed, and adjust sensitivity to goal conflicts.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors describe how an elite group of transnational lawyers constructed an autonomous legal field that has given them a central and powerful role in the global marketplace, and how an informal, settlement-oriented system became formalized and litigious.
Abstract: In recent years, international business disputes have increasingly been resolved through private arbitration. This book details how an elite group of transnational lawyers constructed an autonomous legal field that has given them a central and powerful role in the global marketplace. Building on Pierre Bourdieu's structural approach, this book shows how an informal, settlement-oriented system became formalized and litigious. Using mulitple examples, the book explores how international developmetns can transform domestic methods for handling disputes and analyzes the changing prospects for international business dispute resolution given the growin presence of such international market and regulatory institutions as the EEC, WTO and NAFTA.
