Abstract [en]

The financial markets have been started to get decentralized and even distributed. Consumers can now purchase stocks from their home computers without the use of a traditional broker. The dynamism and unpredictability of this domain which is continuously growing in complexity and also the giant volume of information which can affect this market, makes it one of the best potential domains to take advantage of agents. This thesis considers the main concerns of securities e-trading area in order to highlight advantages and disadvantages of multi-agent negotiating systems for online trading of securities comparing to single-agent systems. And then presents a multi-agent system design named MASTNA which considers both decision making and negotiating. The design seeks to improve the main concerns of securities e-trading such as speed, accuracy and handling complexities. MASTNA works over a distributed market and engages different types of agents in order to perform different tasks. For handling the negotiations MASTNA takes advantage of mobile negotiator agents with the purpose of handling parallel negotiations over an unreliable network (Internet).
