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

Klaus Fischer, Michael Schillo, Jörg Siekmann
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
But the organisation of a multiagent systems is difficult to specify at design time in the face of a changing environment.  ...  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  ...  This is especially true if we look at MAS, in which self-organisation is an important aspect.  ...

A Taxonomy of Autonomy in Multiagent Organisation [chapter]

Holonic Crisis Handling Model for Corporate Sustainability

Levente Bakos, Dănuț Dumitrașcu
2017 Sustainability  
We consider organizations as complex systems, and we use the holonic multiagent modelling concept to depict the emergent behaviour of these systems.  ...  This behaviour must be sustainable on a long-term basis in financial, environmental, social and ethical terms. The objective of our paper is to present a conceptual model based on a holonic concept.  ...  In the case of holonic multiagent systems the holons can decide if they want to be part in a holarchy, and they can leave whenever they want.  ...
