    An approach, often adopted in the multiagent-systems community, is to start from scratch, designing agents and platforms with provable properties using specialized logics and/or sophisticated simulation models. However, this approach is particularly difficult when dealing with open systems containing adaptive agents. This is because the designer can't be sure how other agents will behave in future...
