We introduce the notion of a middleman in a TU Cooperative game. The middleman engages in intermediary activities which increases the output of every coalition. For this, he offers a scheme of intermediary activities for each coalition. We propose a new parametric class of solutions called the Intermediary values which are characterized using some standard and some nontrivial axioms. We have shown the applicability of the model by means of a couple of numerical examples.
- TU game
- Intermediary value
