Modeling Multi Agent Communication Activities with Petri Nets

Sama Khosravifar

Abstract—Multi-agent systems traditionally use communication protocols, which are sequence of activities, where some of these protocols do not take care of autonomy of agents in communication. In this paper we focus on the information flow among different entities of agent communication. We present a Petri Net based generic framework for modeling different types of communication. While communicating, each agent independently can fire a transition, which affects the state of the dialogue. Our approach provides theoretical framework for studying communication dialogues at a conceptual and logical level.

Index Terms—Multi-agent systems, agent interaction, petri nets.
