Much has been published on the functional properties of multi-agent systems (MASs) including their co-ordination rationality and knowledge modelling. However, an important research area which has so far received only scant attention covers the non-functional properties of MASs which include performance, scalability and stability issues — clearly thes become increasingly important as the MAS field matures, and as more practical MASs become operational. An understanding of how to evaluate and… CONTINUE READING
