GA-Based Parameter Tuning for Multi-Agent Systems

By Joseph Haas, Maxim Peysakhov and Spiros Mancoridis


software system designers due to its dynamism and unpredictable nature. Network links can go up and down depending on a variety of physical factors, such as movement of hosts, terrain, weather, interference, or available battery power. Agent based systems, with their runtime flexibility, can adapt to such environments better than centralized systems [4]. On the other hand, the tuning and control of the agent based system is more complicated, due to the flexible and decentralized nature of Multi-Agent Systems (MAS). Since it is unlikely that the optimal agent population composition can be derived theoretically, a search based technique should be used to find acceptable suboptimal solutions rather then guaranteed optimal ones. Many references to the example of information dissemination or collection by agent based systems will be used throughout this paper. Envisio
