Multiagent resource allocation

2006 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
Resource allocation in multiagent systems is a central research issue in the AgentLink community.  ...  As argued by Dunne, a significant problem is that, excepting very restricted environments, all methods for multiagent resource allocation ultimately face issues of computational intractability.  ...  Chevaleyre, who discussed a MARA framework where rational but myopic agents negotiate over the allocation of indivisible resource in a distributed manner.  ...

Multi-dimensional fairness for auction-based resource allocation

Albert Pla, Beatriz López, Javier Murillo
2015 Knowledge-Based Systems  
Multi-attribute resource allocation problems involves the allocation of resources on the basis of several attributes, therefore, the definition of a fairness method for this kind of auctions should be  ...  The results pointed that multi-dimensional fairness incentives agents to remain in the market whilst it improves the equity of the wealth distribution without compromising the quality of the allocation  ...  Conclusions Fairness mechanisms for multi-attribute resource allocation problems, from a multi-dimensional perspective, need to take into account all the attributes which affect the allocation since focusing  ...

2014 Journal of Grid Computing  
These tasks are scheduled to allocate available Grid resources efficiently to achieve high system throughput and to satisfy choose the most appropriate mechanism for a given system/application.  ...  Grid is a distributed high performance computing paradigm that offers various types of resources (like computing, storage, communication) to resource-intensive user tasks.  ...  Therefore, the aforementioned mechanism relies on a structured two-stage negotiation method among agents. Each agent disseminates the resource request and compensation plan to other n -1 agents.  ...
