Distributed Multi-Agents for Simulation of Complex Systems


We describe a multi agent-based paradigm which integrates the salient features of several agent models. The integrated multi agent paradigm can be realised as a distributed transaction-based model for negotiation and planning. It supports complex interaction mechanisms which are required in distributed virtual environment and distributed simulation technology for complex systems. These collaborative (cooperative) multi-agents will support distributed simulation applications including financial, military and government systems. The multi-agent architecture will be developed using Java based tools and distributed databases.
