Most real-world negotiation scenarios involve multiple, interdependent issues. These scenarios are specially challenging because the agents’ utility functions are nonlinear, which makes traditional negotiation mechanisms not applicable. Even mechanisms designed and proven useful for nonlinear utility spaces may fail if the utility space is highly nonlinear. For example, simulated annealing has been used successfully in bidding based negotiations with constraint-based utility spaces to identify… CONTINUE READING
