While privacy may have a role for cooperating agents, it is easier understood in the context of self-interested utility-based agents, and this is the(More)
Privacy has traditionally been a major motivation for distributed problem solving. Distributed Constraint Satisfaction Problem (DisCSP) as well as Distributed Constraint Optimization Problem (DCOP) are fundamental models used to solve various families of distributed problems. Even though several approaches have been proposed to quantify and preserve privacy(More)
