Then, we observe dynamic properties of system under several settings of agents to derive a guideline for designing eective m ultiagent systems based on loose coalitions.  ...  The subjective information reect the agents' cooperative b e h a vior of the past. Next, we introduce loose coalition, a concept of a coalition of agents based on the subjective information.  ...  From the results of this experiment, we can say that it is important to propagate information of agents with higher Reliability in a minimum time to design ecient m ultiagent systems based on a loose coalition  ...

Analyzing Cooperation in Iterative Social Network Design

Guido Boella, Leendert van der Torre, Serena Villata

Towards Adaptive Workflow Enactment Using Multiagent Systems

Paul A. Buhler, Jos� M. Vidal
2005 Journal of Special Topics in Information Technology and Management  
We firmly believe that the historic trajectory of software development paradigms and IT advancements will establish multiagent systems as the workflow enactment mechanism of the future.  ...  Specifically, we advance the idea that the Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL4WS) can be used as a specification language for expressing the initial social order of the multiagent  ...  This places new demands on software architectures because they will need to support computing with "dynamically-formed, task-specific, coalitions of distributed autonomous resources" [14, pg 99] .  ...

Holonic Multiagent Systems: A Foundation for the Organisation of Multiagent Systems [chapter]

Klaus Fischer, Michael Schillo, Jörg Siekmann
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents basic concepts for a theory of holonic multiagent systems to both provide a methodology for the recursive modelling of agent groups, and allow for dynamic reorganisation during runtime  ...  Looking at the problem solving capacity of multiagent systems, emergent system behaviour is one of the most interesting phenomena, however, there is more to multiagent systems design than the interaction  ...  Secondly, holonic multiagent systems are one way to introduce recursion into the modelling of multiagent systems, which has proven to be a powerful mechanism in software design.  ...

Fostering Cooperation through Dynamic Coalition Formation and Partner Switching

Ana Peleteiro, Juan C. Burguillo, Josep Ll. Arcos, Juan A. Rodriguez-Aguilar
2014 ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems  
Therefore, we introduce and analyze a novel dynamic coalition formation mechanism, that uses partner switching, to help self-interested agents to increase their profits in a resource exchange environment  ...  Although dynamic coalition formation and partner switching (rewiring) have been shown to promote the emergence and maintenance of cooperation for self-interested agents, no prior work in the literature  ...  J.Ll.A. and J.A.R-A are partially funded by projects EVE (TIN2009-14702-C02-01), AT (CSD2007-0022), COR (TIN2012-38876-C02-01), MECER (201250E053), and the Generalitat of Catalunya grant 2009-SGR-1434  ...

Deriving consensus in multiagent systems

Eithan Ephrati, Jeffrey S. Rosenschein
1996 Artificial Intelligence  
Clarke tax-like mechanisms provide a set of attractive alternatives for the designers of multiagent environments, particularly if those environments consist of individually motivated heterogeneous agents  ...  However, though theoretically attractive, the Clarke tax presents a number of difficulties when one attempts to use it in practical implementations.  ...  This section presents an iterative, dynamic variation of the original mechanism. The basic idea is that instead of a "one-shot" voting procedure, the vote takes place as a sequence of steps.  ...

Efficient and distributable methods for solving the multiagent plan coordination problem

Jeffrey Cox, Edmund Durfee, Mathijs de Weerdt, Brad Clement
2009 Multiagent and Grid Systems  
In this paper, we formally define a common coordination problem subclass, which we call the Multiagent Plan Coordination Problem, that is rich enough to represent a wide variety of multiagent coordination  ...  We then describe a general framework that extends the partial-order, causal-link plan representation to the multiagent case, and that treats coordination as a form of iterative repair of plan flaws between  ...  One example of particular interest in our work is in coordinating the activities of partners in a military coalition (to avoid catastrophic interference like "friendly fire" and duplicated effort like  ...
