Distributed Problem Solving in Multiagent Systems: A Spring Net Approach
July/August 2005 (vol. 20 no. 4)
pp. 66-74

A spring net approach transforms distributed problem solving in multiagent systems (MASs) into the evolutionary deformation of a class of crossbar composite spring net. The proposed spring net is essentially different from the elastic net developed by Richard Durbin and David Willshaw and subsequently extended by others. This approach outperforms the elastic net and other methods used in MASs in its ability to deal with a variety of complicated social interactions and autonomous behaviors that might occur.
