A Survey of Collectives

  title={A Survey of Collectives},
  author={Kagan Tumer and David H. Wolpert},
Due to the increasing sophistication and miniaturization of computational components, complex, distributed systems of interacting agents are becoming ubiquitous. Such systems, where each agent aims to optimize its own performance, but where there is a welldefined set of system-level performance criteria, are called collectives. The fundamental problem in analyzing/designing such systems is in determining how the combined actions of a large number of agents leads to “coordinated” behavior on the… CONTINUE READING
