We present an agent-based P2P system, called Visitant, to integrate mobile agent technology with P2P computing. The use of structured P2P systems as the base layer allows agents to efficiently locate resources and communicate with each other. It also allows us to incorporate a security control mechanism to prevent malicious hosts from colluding with each other to paralyze the system. To demonstrate Visitant, we built an application to simulate Fujiwhara effect-the tendency of two nearby tropical cyclones to rotate around each other.
