Researchers building multi-agent algorithms typically work with problems abstracted away from real applications. The abstracted problem instances allow systematic and detailed investigations of new algorithms. However, a key question is how to apply algorithm, developed on an abstract problem, in a real application. In this paper, we report on what was… CONTINUE READING
