    Negotiation procedures that are founded on the doctrine of individual rationality, where each participant is committed to maximizing its own satisfaction, are limited in their ability to accommodate the interests of others, and therefore, may unnecessarily constrain the negotiability of a decision maker, particularly in cooperative environments. Satisficing game theory provides a distinct alternat... View full abstract»

  • Integrative negotiation among agents situated in organizations

    This paper addresses the problem of negotiation in a complex organizational context. An integrative negotiation mechanism is introduced, which enables agents to dynamically select a negotiation attitude based on the degree of external directedness. Experimental work explores the question of whether it always improves the organization's social welfare to have an agent be completely externally direc... View full abstract»

  • Bilateral negotiation decisions with uncertain dynamic outside options

    We present a model for bilateral negotiations that considers the uncertain and dynamic outside options. Outside options affect the negotiation strategies via their impact on the reservation price. The model is composed of three modules: single-threaded negotiations, synchronized multithreaded negotiations, and dynamic multithreaded negotiations. These three modules embody increased sophistication ... View full abstract»

  • Bilateral bargaining with multiple opportunities: knowing your opponent's bargaining position

    Negotiations have been extensively studied theoretically throughout the years. A well-known bilateral approach is the ultimatum game, where two agents negotiate on how to split a surplus or a "dollar"-the proposer makes an offer and responder can choose to accept or reject. In this paper a natural extension of the ultimatum game is presented, in which both agents can negotiate with other opponents... View full abstract»

  • Software agents and market (in) efficiency: a human trader experiment

    This paper studies how software agents influence the market behavior of human traders. Software agents with a passive arbitrage-seeking strategy are introduced in a double auction market experiment with human subjects in the laboratory. As a treatment variable, the influence of information on the existence of software agents is investigated. We found that common knowledge about the presence of sof... View full abstract»

  • A game theoretic approach to contracts in multiagent systems

    Contracts are used to create new interaction possibilities among agents, and therefore play an important role in the game theoretic analysis of agent interaction. We use normative multiagent systems to model both the contracts and the interactions. In particular, we formalize contracts as systems of regulative and constitutive norms within a larger rule-governed setting and, using recursive modeli... View full abstract»

  • A Cooperative mediation-based protocol for dynamic distributed resource allocation

    In this paper, we present a cooperative mediation-based protocol that solves a distributed resource allocation problem while conforming to soft real-time constraints in a dynamic environment. Two central principles are used in this protocol that allow it to operate in constantly changing conditions. First, we frame the allocation problem as an optimization problem, similar to a partial constraint ... View full abstract»

  • Learning dynamic prices in MultiSeller electronic retail markets with price sensitive customers, stochastic demands, and inventory replenishments

    In this paper, we use reinforcement learning (RL) as a tool to study price dynamics in an electronic retail market consisting of two competing sellers, and price sensitive and lead time sensitive customers. Sellers, offering identical products, compete on price to satisfy stochastically arriving demands (customers), and follow standard inventory control and replenishment policies to manage their i...

    With the increasing importance of e-commerce across the Internet, the need for software agents to support customers and suppliers in buying and selling goods/services is growing rapidly. It is becoming increasingly evident that in a few years the Internet will host a large number of interacting software agents. Most of them will be economically motivated, and will negotiate a variety of goods and ... View full abstract»
