Coalition formation, a key factor in multi-agent cooperation, can be solved optimally for at most a few dozen agents. This paper proposes a general approach to find suboptimal solutions for a large-scale coalition formation problem containing thousands of agents using multi-agent simulation. We model coalition formation as an iterative process in which… CONTINUE READING
