    • found: Agtivity web page, accessed Dec. 17, 2009 : (A multi-agent system (MAS) is a collection of software agents that work in conjunction with each other. They may cooperate or they may compete, or some combination of cooperation and competition, but there is some common infrastructure that result in the collection being a 'system', as opposed to simply being a disjoint set of autonomous agents. Alternative definition: A multi-agent system (MAS) is a computational system where agents cooperate or compete with others to achieve some individual or collective task) {http://agtivity.com/def/multi_agent_system.htm}
    • found: Wikipedia, accessed Dec. 17, 2009: (Redirected from Multiagent. An agent-based model (ABM) (also sometimes related to the term multi-agent system or multi-agent simulation) is a class of computational models for simulating the actions and interactions of autonomous agents (both individual or collective entities such as organizations or groups) with a view to assessing their effects on the system as a whole. It combines elements of game theory, complex systems, emergence, computational sociology, multi-agent systems, and evolutionary programming. Monte Carlo Methods are used to introduce randomness)
