A theoretical grounding is provided for a cooperating knowledge-based systems (CKBS) model which is based upon agents, cooperation blocks, and cooperation block hierarchies. Our model describes the requirements for task decomposition, negotiation, cooperation and coordination, fault tolerance, and recoverability, these requirements in turn defining a holonic system. The behavioral properties of our model are described using state transition diagrams and properties of correctness and termination are proven.
