Architectural Design of Multi-Agent Systems: Technologies by Hong Lin, Hong Lin

By Hong Lin, Hong Lin

Agent-oriented layout has develop into on of the main lively components within the box of software program engineering. even supposing nice advances were made within the research of the architectural layout of agent structures, the complexity and multi-disciplinary ways of this continually starting to be box are at present of a untimely nature in comparison to the place they need to be. Architectural layout of Multi-Agent structures: applied sciences and strategies offers a compilation of complicated learn effects concentrating on structure and modeling problems with multi-agent platforms. This examine serves as a reference for additional study on procedure versions, architectural layout languages, formal equipment and reasoning, module interface layout, and layout matters. Architectural layout of Multi-Agent structures: applied sciences and methods provides high-level concerns corresponding to: modeling agent structures in cognitive sciences, wisdom administration, in-depth publicity of agent concept, and cutting-edge examine on layout caliber of agent platforms.

Example text

In the sixth phase, it assembles agent classes into an agent architecture. In the final phase, it creates instances and models the application through deployment diagram. , 2001) is based on UML (unified modeling language). It has extended UML to support the distinctive requirements of multi-agent systems. AUML provides tools for representing agent classes, specifying agent interaction protocols, representing the internal behavior of an agent, representing role specification, packages, templates with agent interfaces, and deployment diagrams indicating mobility.

The salient features of this framework are: • • • • • • • Means for agent identification. Means for user interaction. Support for co-existence of multiple agents and simultaneous execution. Local and remote communication (RMI/ IIOP*). A subset (almost complete) of ACL grammar for basic messaging (message syntax) and a grammar and ontology for agent management. An interpreter for ACL and another for AMS grammar and ontology. A platform consisting of three standard FIPA-compliant management agents: agent management system (AMS), directory facilitator (DF) and agent communication channel (ACC).

Mostly communication Message Type Speech-acts Unconstrained Protocol Interaction protocol (IP) Unconstrained Communication Type Static (remote) and mobile (local) Mostly static Knowledge Specs Ontology for the domain Abstractions Generalization, aggregation, cooperation Inheritance Mental states Data from database Generalization, aggregation, association Methods & attributes Outputs Agent classes & extended agent model (XAM) Object Classes & abstractions Toward Agent-Oriented Conceptualization and Implementation putation.
