Analysing Partner Selection through Exchange Values

Rodrigues, M R and Luck, M, Sichman, J and Antunes, L(eds.) (2006) Analysing Partner Selection through Exchange Values Multi-Agent-Based Simulation VI, 3891, pp. 24-40.

Record type: Article


Dynamic and resource-constrained environments raise interesting issues for partnership formation and multi-agent systems. In a scenario in which agents interact with each other to exchange services, if computational resources are limited, agents cannot always accept a request, and may take time to find available partners to delegate their needed services. Several approaches are available to solve this problem, which we explore through an experimental evaluation in this paper. In particular, we provide a computational implementation of Piaget's exchange-values theory, and compare its performance against alternatives.
