Convergence & Knowledge Processing in Multi-Agent Systems (Advanced Information & Knowledge Processing) by Maria Chli
English | 2009 | ISBN: 1848820623 | 153 Pages | PDF | 2 MB
Agent systems are being used to model complex systems like societies, markets & biological systems.
In this book we investigate issues of agent systems related to convergence & interactivity using techniques from agent based modelling to simulate complex systems, & demonstrate that interactivity/exchange & convergence in multi-agent systems are issues that are significantly interrelated. Topic & features: - Introduces the state of the art in multi-agent systems, with an emphasis on agent-based computational economics. - Sheds light on the fundamental concepts behind the stability of multi-agent systems. - Investigates knowledge exchange among agents, the rationale behind it & its effects on the ecosystem. - Explores how information provided through interaction with the system can be used to optimise its performance. - Describes a pricing strategy for a realistic large-scale distributed system. This book supplies a comprehensive resource & will be invaluable reading for researchers & postgraduates studying this topic.
