A valuation algebra offers a suitable framework to represent knowledge and information. Based on this framework, several algorithms to process knowledge and pooled under the name local computation were mapped out in recent years. This paper proposes an extension of the valuation algebra framework that allows to express the costs of transmitting valuations between network hosts. Based on this model, we estimate the total computation costs caused by the local computation architectures and observe… Expand
