In multiagent systems interaction protocols are usually enforced by law Enforcement is prob lematic among computational agents because they may operate under incomplete or di erent laws the laws may not be uniformly enforced and the agents can vanish easily This paper presents an enforcement free method for car rying out exchanges so that both agents are motivated to abide to their contract This is achieved by splitting the exchanged goods into partial exchanges so that at each step both agents… CONTINUE READING
