Agents in Principle, Agents in Practice: 14th International by Milind Tambe (auth.), David Kinny, Jane Yung-jen Hsu, Guido

By Milind Tambe (auth.), David Kinny, Jane Yung-jen Hsu, Guido Governatori, Aditya K. Ghose (eds.)

This publication constitutes the lawsuits of the 14th overseas convention on ideas and perform in Multi-Agent structures, PRIMA 2011, held in Wollongong, Australia, in November 2011.
The 39 papers provided including three invited talks have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from a number of submissions. They specialize in useful elements of multiagent platforms and are organised in topical sections on coalitions and teamwork, studying, mechanisms and vote casting, modeling and simulation, negotiation and coalitions, optimization, sustainability, agent societies and frameworks, argumentation, and applications.

A group of n0 robots represented by a swarm locus that reaches a corridor point x ∈ S prevents recontamination if and only if n0 ≥ R(x). Proof. See full version [26]. Corollary 1. A group of n0 robots represented by a swarm locus moving along a corridor G = [a b] ⊂ S prevents recontamination at all points x ∈ G if and only if n0 ≥ maxx∈G {R(x)}. Environment Characterization for Non-recontaminating Robotic Exploration 27 When a swarm locus reaches an end point, the situation is the reverse of that at the beginning.

A number of issues need to be addressed in transforming this representation into the discrete domain. One would need to consider an undirected graph and junctions would need to be represented accordingly. It is known that computing the number of searchers required to clear a general graph is NP-hard [21], so suitable heuristics or approximations would need to be employed. Alternatively, the graph could be converted into a tree such as in [15], [16]; however the non-isotropic nature of the junction transition function would demand a judicious approach to blocking cycles.

Fig. 2d shows the relief map quantization. The relief contours indicate multiples of the sensing radius r. The degree of a point x ∈ S is given by the function θ : S → N>0 which maps every point on the skeleton to a natural number k. Specifically, we define a point x ∈ S to have degree θ(x) = k if there exists an a ∈ R>0 such that ∀ε ∈ (0, a] a circle centered at x of radius ε intersects the skeleton S at exactly k points. Borrowing notation from [6], we use the degree of a point x ∈ S to distinguish between three types of points on the skeleton: corridor points, end points and junction points.
