Layering-ADOPT: ADOPT with Layering Boundary

Chen He, Ziyu Chen, Zhen He
2017 DEStech Transactions on Engineering and Technology Research  
In the experiment, Layering-ADOPT and ADOPT as well as BnB-ADOPT are compared on random DCOPs. The results show that Layering-ADOPT is superior to ADOPT and BnB-ADOPT on the test problems.  ...  This paper presents a rule to get a layering boundary and a new strategy to realize the joint between ADOPT and BnB-ADOPT.  ...  In order to obtain a better tradeoff between ADOPT and BnB-ADOPT, ADOPT(k) [10] was proposed, which generalized ADOPT and BnB-ADOPT by introducing the parameter k to adjust the value variation conditions  ...

Adding laziness in BnB-ADOPT+

Jimmy H. M. Lee, Pedro Meseguer, Wen Su
2014 Constraints  
In distributed constraint optimization, agents executing BnB-ADOPT + react eagerly to cost changes: they send non-redundant COST messages to their parents as soon as they receive new messages.  ...  We have observed that a lazier reaction (not sending COST messages until a condition is met) substantially decrements the number of messages sent and causes only a small variation in ENCCCs.  ...  S-HK003/12 and 2011HK0017, TIN2013-45732-C4-4-P from Spanish MINECO, and Generalitat de Catalunya SGR-2014-118.  ...

Removing Redundant Messages in N-ary BnB-ADOPT

P. Gutierrez, P. Meseguer
2012 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
Some of the messages exchanged by BnB-ADOPT turned out to be redundant.  ...  Both issues - removing most of the redundant messages and efficiently handling n-ary cost functions - can be combined, producing the new version BnB-ADOPT+.  ...  C 2 is redundant. 2 BnB-ADOPT + Temporary, we define BnB-ADOPT + as BnB-ADOPT with the following changes: (1) the second of two consecutive VALUEs with the same i, j and val is not sent, (2) the second  ...

Connecting AFB_BJ+ with soft arc consistency

Rachid Adrdor, Redouane Ezzahir, Lahcen Koutti
2018 International Journal of Computing and Optimization  
It relies on pruning non-optimal values of an agent domain, using AC * , and propagating them, without adding other types of messages, for generating other deletions that will likewise be propagated.  ...  The Distributed Constraint Optimization Problem (DCOP) is a major and powerful paradigm for modeling and solving problems in multiagent coordination.  ...  BnB-Adopt + -AC * and BnB-Adopt + -DP2 perform badly when solving Max-DisCSP and Random DCOPs.  ...

BnB-ADOPT: An Asynchronous Branch-and-Bound DCOP Algorithm

W. Yeoh, A. Felner, S. Koenig
2010 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
We introduce Branch-and-Bound ADOPT (BnB-ADOPT), a memory-bounded asynchronous DCOP search algorithm that uses the message-passing and communication framework of ADOPT (Modi, Shen, Tambe, & Yokoo, 2005  ...  Thus, we present two new bounded-error approximation mechanisms that allow for relative error bounds and implement them on top of BnB-ADOPT.  ...  Acknowledgments This article is an extension of two earlier publications (Yeoh, Felner, & Koenig, 2008a; Yeoh, Koenig, & Sun, 2008b) and contains additional expositions, examples and proofs.  ...

2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The Distributed Constraint Optimization Problem (DCOP) is a powerful framework for modeling and solving applications in multi-agent coordination.  ...  This reduces both the number of messages needed and the time future agents remain idle. In addition, these lower bounds can be used as a value ordering heuristic in AFB BJ + .  ...  In this section we experimentally compare AFB BJ + to AFB BJ [7] , BnB-Adopt + [8] , and BnB-Adopt-DP2 + (BnB-Adopt + combined with DP2 value ordering heuristic [1] ).  ...
