A Trust Model For Advisor Networks In Multi-Agent Environments

ELHAM MAJD
2015 Zenodo  
Multi-agent systems can break interactions in distributed and heterogeneous environments.  ...  In this case, if an agent wants to interact with unknown provider agents, they need to request other agents to advise a trustworthy provider.  ...  However, even with this uncertainty in an environment, agents must be able to make wise decisions and successfully interact with other agents.  ...

Return on Assets Loss from Situational and Contingency Misfits

Richard M. Burton, Jørgen Lauridsen, Børge Obel
2002 Management science  
We confirm the hypotheses that firms with situational misfits or contingency misfits, or both, incur performance losses in return on assets compared with firms with no misfits.  ...  The model is a set of "if-then" misfit rules, in which misfits lead to a loss in performance; they are complements to the strategy and organizational contingency theory fit rules.  ...  Earlier versions of this paper were presented in seminars at Stockholm School of Economics, Technical University of Berlin, and Aarhus University.  ...
