Methods for Task Allocation via Agent Coalition Formation
Task execution in multi-agent environments may require cooperation among agents. Given a set of agents and a set of tasks which they have to satisfy, we consider situations where ...

Multi-objective task allocation in distributed computing systems by hybrid particle swarm optimization
In a distributed computing system (DCS), we need to allocate a number of modules to different processors for execution. It is desired to maximize the processor synergism in order...

Fault tolerant mechanism design
We introduce the notion of fault tolerant mechanism design, which extends the standard game theoretic framework of mechanism design to allow for uncertainty about execution. Speci...

Task dynamics in self-organising task groups: expertise, motivational, and performance differences of specialists and generalist
Abstract Multi-agent simulation is applied to explore how different types of task variety cause workgroups to change their task allocation accordingly. We studied two groups, gener...

Multi-agent task allocation: learning when to say no
This paper presents a communication-less multi-agent task allocation procedure that allows agents to use past experience to make non-greedy decisions about task assignments. Exper...

Adaptive Task Allocation Inspired by a Model of Division of Labor in Social Insects
Social insects provide us with a powerful metaphor to create decentralized systems of simple interacting, and often mobile, agents. The emergent collective intelligence of social i...
