ABSTRACTION FROM COLLABORATION BETWEEN AGENTS USING ASYNCHRONOUS MESSAGE-PASSING

Bent Bruun Kristensen

Abstract

Collaboration between agents using asynchronous message-passing is typically described in centric form distributed among the agents. An alternative associative form also by means of message-passing is shared between agents: This abstraction from collaboration is a descriptive unit and makes description of collaboration between agents simple and natural.
