A LOCAL-GLOBAL MODEL FOR MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS - Sheaves on the Category MAS

Thomas Soboll, Ulrike Golas

Abstract

In multiagent systems, each agent has its own local view of the environment. Nevertheless, agents try to cooperate to reach a common global goal. In this paper, we use a suitable Grothendieck topology and sheaves to model the agents’ local data and their communication.
