Grid computing shares geographically distributed computer resources, which are owned by different owners, over the Internet. Sharing the resources dynamically in this environment becomes challenging. Multi-agents could be used to meet this challenge due to their distributed nature and autonomous behavior. This paper investigates suitable economic models for(More)
Knowledge and knowledge management are key factors for success in any organization. Knowledge exists into two forms which are explicit and tacit. Managing knowledge is not an easy task since knowledge is available in different forms and has different types. This paper introduces types of knowledge and shows how appropriate knowledge management is precarious(More)
Economic models are found efficient in managing heterogeneous computer resources such as storage, CPU and memory for grid computing. Commodity market, double auction and contract-net-protocol economic models have been widely discussed in the literature. These models are suitable for sharing distributed computer resources that belong to different owners.(More)
Economic-based approaches have been found to be effective for distributed resource management in Grid computing. However, deciding which model to use is challenging, because (1) the performance stability of a particular model in a dynamic and distributed environment, is hard to establish (2) the performance objective of the Grid network may be complex, and(More)
