We present an application of a multi-agent cooperative search approach to the problem of optimizing gas pipeline operations, i.e. finding control parameters for a gas transmission network that result in a low usage of energy to make the required gas deliveries. Our cooperative search approach improves on the pure competition of search agents by having them(More)
We aim to determine the pipeline operation configurations requiring the minimum amount of energy (e.g. fuel, power) needed to operate the equipment at compressor stations for given transportation requirements. Considering the problem as a search for the optimal operation conditions, speedup of the process can be achieved by careful formulation of the search(More)
A distributed approach, specifically the multiagent paradigm, is evaluated as methodology for designing decision support systems (DSS). The main properties of multi-agent systems (MAS) theory such as modularity leaning abilities, and autonomy, are exploited to overcome weaknesses of current DSS design approaches. The approach has been evaluated as proof of(More)
The periodic properties of reversible one-dimensional cellular automata are analyzed. The configuration set is taken as a topological space based on cylinder sets. Reversible one-dimensional cellular automata with neighborhood size 2 are used for representing the whole set of reversible automata. Using the characterization of reversible automata by block(More)
