Basic Characteristics of a Macroscopic Measure for Detecting Abnormal Changes in a Multiagent System

Tetsuo Kinoshita
2015 Sensors  
The proposed measure is designed as the variance of fluctuation of a macroscopic activity factor of the whole system, based on theoretical analysis of the macroscopic behavioral model of a multiagent system  ...  To manage and control the system, it is important to observe and detect negative effects using an appropriate observation function of the system's behavior.  ...  Hence, in the runtime system, it is expected that unstable states of the activity factor will emerge according to changes in the system's parameters.  ...
