Multi-Agent Systems in Computational Markets and Ecosystems
Blekinge Institute of Technology, Department of Computer Science and Business Administration1996 (English)Report (Other academic)
This report investigates the prospects of using multi-agent systems for resource allocation in computational markets and ecosystems. The intention is to get an overview of this emerging field by looking closer to some of the papers published so far. The report starts with a brief introduction to the resource allocation problem and a discussion of the algorithmic and implementational issues to consider when the resource allocation problem is applied to networks of computational agents. The frrst three papers share the tommon idea of computational markets to handle resource allocation problems. The fourth paper gives a terminologital framework for communication and interaction between agents in a real-time enviromnent. The overall objective of the investigation is to acquire knowledge of the adequacy of using multi-agent system based approaches to resource allocation with a special aim for the future systems of automated electricity distribution.
