The innate difficulty of constructing multi-agent systems has motivated agent developers to move away from developing point solutions to point problems in favour of developing methodologies and toolkits for building distributed multi-agent systems. This philosophy led to the development of the ZEUS Agent Building Toolkit, which facilitates the rapid(More)
There is an emerging consensus on the need to develop methodologies and tool-kits for building distributed multi-agent systems. This paper presents ZEUS, an advanced development tool-kit for constructing collaborative agent applications. ZEUS is a culmination of a careful synthesis of established agent technologies with the addition of some new ones, to(More)
The multi-agent systems approach of knowledge level co-operation between autonomous agents promises significant benefits to distributed systems engineering, such as enhanced interoperability, scalability and reconfigurability. However, thus far, because of the innate difficulty of constructing multi-agent systems, this promise has been largely unrealised.(More)
Visualising the behaviour of systems with distributed data, control and process is a notoriously difficult task. Each component in the distributed system has only a local view of the whole set-up, and the onus is on the user to integrate, into a coherent whole, the large amounts of limited information they provide. In this paper, we describe an architecture(More)
BACKGROUND The cross-sectional relation between migraine headaches and affective disorders has been demonstrated in studies of clinical and community populations. Few studies have investigated the prospective relation between psychiatric disorders and migraine headaches. METHODS A prospective follow-up of the Baltimore, Md, cohort of the Epidemiologic(More)
There is an emerging desire among agent researchers to move away from developing point solutions to point problems in favour of developing methodologies and tool-kits for building distributed multi-agent systems.

We study a general network of agents that can be built with Zeus [?]. Relationships between agents can be peer, slave, master, discounter, or no relation at all. There are four possible strategies: the cheapest agent is selected, preference to slaves first, cut-price discounting based on the utility, and cheapest agent chosen, but preference given to(More)
