Abstract [en]

Computer networks are to an increasing extent becoming interconnected making it possible to access a vast array of remote resources. In this context, we have explored how a multi-agent system could be designed to support the use of the resources in such a way as to enable complete resource sharing and dynamic resource allocation. This allows providers to sell access to resources which enables users to utilize otherwise private resources. In this thesis we introduce a system called HotSpot in which resources are managed by agents and are allocated using automated negotiation.

An infrastructure supporting the discovery and location of agents and resources has been designed and is realized by special system services. The emphasis has been on specifying how the entities that constitute these services should behave and interact in order to maintain a high level of scalability, robustness, flexibility, and autonomy in an agent environment. The negotiation scheme in HotSpot is based on automated contracting and the contributions in this area are models for the implementation of the agents involved. These models describe algorithms that can be used for announcement- and bid evaluation. A prototype including the basic ideas has been implemented. The implementation indicates that the HotSpot system provides the basic functionality needed to enable complete resource sharing.
