Whereas the latter exclude non-trustworthy partners, reputation is a more inclusive mechanism upon which larger and more dynamic networks are constructed. After the presentation of the theory of reputation developed by the authors in the last decade, a computational system (REPAGE) for forming and exchanging reputation information will be presented and findings from experimental simulations recently run on this system will be resumed. Final remarks and...
