Coalition Formation Problem: New Multi-Agent Methods with Preference Models

Samir Aknine, Suzanne Pinson, and Melvin F. Shakun

Current multi-agent coalition formation methods present two major problems. First, some of these methods can be applied only to cooperative multi-agent systems; second, the algorithms proposed may fail in the formation of the coalitions. This article proposes two methods for problems of agent coalition formation in cooperative and non-cooperative multi-agent systems. These methods are based on agent preference models and on preference aggregation using the Choquet integral.
