Abstract (EN)The aim of this paper is to introduce and axiomatically characterize the P-value as a rule to solve the cost sharing problem in minimum cost spanning tree (mcst) situations. The P-value is related to the Kruskal algorithm for ﬁnding an mcst. Moreover, the P-value leads to a core allocation of the corresponding mcst game, and when applied also to the mcst subsituations it delivers a population monotonic allocation scheme. A cone-wise positive linearity property is one of the basic ingredients of an axiomatic characterization of the P-value.
