[This book introduces a variational basis for the regulation and structuration mechanisms of agent societies.]
[This book builds on three different conceptual perspectives: the system-theoretic, the exchange-theoretic, and the regulatory. In this chapter, we discuss the most important features of each such perspective. Also, we discuss two complementary concepts that are instrumental to the theoretical...
[Agent societies (Costa and Dimuro, A minimal dynamical organization model. In Dignum (ed) Handbook of Multi-Agent Systems: Semantics and Dynamics of Organizational Models. IGI Global, Hershey, pp 419–445, 2009; Costa, On the bases of an architectural style for agent societies: Concept and core...
[We call core operatory structure of an agent society the structure composed of: the network of observable behaviors and exchange processes existent in the organizational structure of the society, with the behaviors and exchange processes indexed by the social actors that perform them;the...
[In this chapter, we introduce a set of operations (called variations) that support the regulation and the structuration mechanisms of core operatory structures of agent societies. We say that such set of regulation and structuration variations forms a variational basis for those mechanisms.]
[In this chapter, we examine the architecture and functioning of a model of regulation mechanism for core operatory structures of agent societies.]
[Structuration mechanisms for core operatory structures of agent societies allow core operatory structures to be constructed by their own social actors, according to structuration goals that they themselves specify, and possibly in partnership with social actors that do not belong to those core...
[In this chapter, we illustrate the notions introduced above by studying some aspects of the regulation and structuration of AgrInd, a fragment of the economic system of a hypothetical agent society.]
[It is clear that this book developed only the very elementary variational basis for regulation and structuration of agent societies.]
