Non-cooperative games and stygmergetic programming for a transport optimization problem

Costin Radu Boldea

Abstract


The stigmergy, witch  describes a class of mechanisms that mediate animal to animal interaction through the environment has used in modelling  multi-agent systems, as it provides a simple framework for agent interaction and coordination. In this paper stigmergetic mechanisms are combined with the Nash's theory of non-cooperative games in order to model a concurrent multi-player transport problem. A new version of Ant Colony Optimization using multiple species is proposed.
