Abstract: This chapter gives an overview of the state of the art in decision-theoretic models to describe cooperation between multiple agents in a dynamic environment. Making (near-) optimal decisions in such settings gets harder when the number of agents grows or the uncertainty about the environment increases. It is essential to have compact models, because otherwise just representing the decision problem becomes intractable. Several such model descriptions and approximate solution methods, studied in the Interactive … Show more

“…To consider the impact of different methods of incentivization, we model the pharmaceutical manufacturer decision making process, and the preferences of the healthcare provider. Using decision theoretic methods (DeGroot, 2005; Minton et al., 1962; Oliehoek & Visser, 2010), we incorporate utility functions capturing the main factors considered by either a pharmaceutical manufacturer or healthcare provider in deciding to develop or reimburse a therapy.…”

“…The main purpose of current simulator (version 1) is the benchmark for decision making for multi-agent systems [20,7,8]. By providing the benchmark framework of disaster relief simulator, it is possible to compare the effectiveness of the different approaches.…”

“…However, differently from other works on agent personality traits (e.g.,[6-8, 22, 36]), where traits are defined internally to the agent models, our model describes the agents' observable behaviors in terms of state transition and observation functions, so actually modeling agents' observable strategies, hence our change of terminology 5. See[1,31,35], for other approaches on hybrid agent models in the context of uncertain domains, based on either BDI or MDP models.…”
