Sample text

Obligation has two main readings: one close to pledge and one close to ‘ought’. – A convention or a custom is considered to be an implicit meta-commitment relativised to a debtor and a context group. – A power refers to the ability of an agent to force (if it desires) the alteration of a legal relation in which the another agent participates. Power is expressed as follows: Power(x, y, r) ≡ C(G, x, G, request(x, G, r) ⇒ perform(G, r )) where r is an operation on commitments whose creditor or debtor is an agent y and the context group is G.

6 Discussion We reviewed four approaches for the specification of multi-agent systems exhibiting the features open systems; no access to the code of the agents, no guarantee of benevolent behaviour, and no possibility of predicting the agent interactions. Most reviewed approaches focused on the representation of the permissions and obligations (or commitments) of the agents. These normative relations may be adequate for expressing the system rules when a system can be mainly described in terms of brute facts.
