A parametric optimality principle (choice function) in a finite cooperative game of several persons is determined. This principle is specified by means of partition of players set into coalitions. It generates a set of generally efficient situations. Extreme cases of such a partition correspond to Pareto optimal situation and Nash equilibrium situation. For a situation, efficient for a given partition, analysis of stability to independent perturbations of coefficients of linear payoff functions has been carried out. Extreme levels of perturbations that remain efficient are specified. MSC : 90C29, 90C31
