A negotiation strategy for the Temporal Resource Reallocation Problem in multi-agent systems

International Journal of Internet Protocol Technology (IJIPT), Vol. 3, No. 3, 2008

Abstract: The Temporal Resource Reallocation Problem (TRR-P)is a problem of augmenting importance in the field of agents, as its solution is a gateway towards fully automated negotiation between agents for the fulfillment of tasks whose requirements are incomparably more complex than those that may be solved when the temporal parameter is not considered. Relatively little work has been done in the past in this direction and the applicability of existing negotiation approaches is limited to simplistic cases in which the solutions are rather obvious. In this paper we revise the notion of a promise between agents in order to develop a new negotiation strategy that allows for more sophisticated negotiation among agents, thus being able to successfully tackle a much wider range of problems.
