Aumann-Shapley prices are cost distribution schemes; subject to axioms of additivity, scale invariance and continuity it can be shown that there is a unique solution to the problem of finding unit costs for given joint cost functions. The solution corresponds to the Aumann-Shapley value of large games. The paper surveys the recent contributions to the theory.
