Understanding the Role of Negotiation in Distributed Search Among Heterogereous Agents

  title={Understanding the Role of Negotiation in Distributed Search Among Heterogereous Agents},
  author={Susan E. Lander and Victor R. Lesser},
In our research we explore the role of negotia tion for con ict resolution in distributed search among heterogeneous and reusable agents We present negotiated search an algorithm that ex plicitly recognizes and exploits con ict to direct search activity across a set of agents In nego tiated search loosely coupled agents interleave the tasks of local search for a solution to some subproblem integration of local sub problem solutions into a shared solution information exchange to de ne and re ne… CONTINUE READING
