This paper fixes the purported empty-core problem of the Coase theorem by establishing two mathematical versions of the Coase theorem. The simpler version says that in a coalitional production economy without transaction costs, the maximal payoffs will be produced by the optimal firms and will be split within the always non-empty (new) core. The mathematical model for this theorem yields the smallest upper bound of transaction costs below which the monopoly is optimal and thus be formed.
