Coordination Mechanisms for the Modelling and Simulation of Stochastic Systems: The Case of Uniform Primitives

Stefano Mariani, Andrea Omicini
Since interaction is a foremost source of system complexity, coordination mechanisms are essential for the modelling and simulation of complex systems. By focussing on stochastic systems, in this paper we discuss the role of uniform primitives as the nature-inspired coordination mechanism that could work as the core of a coordination-based complex system simulator.
Keywords: uniform primitives; coordination; simulation, stochastic systems
