Abstract: This paper describes formal architectural models for three types of service systems: static service system, dynamic service system and mobile service system. The system architectures are agent based. For each model, we investigate the properties and give the case study.

Keywords: service oriented architecture; SOA; multi-agent systems; MAS; Petri nets; agent-based systems; formal architectural models; service systems.
