Collective Sorting Tuple Spaces

Mirko Viroli, Matteo Casadei, Luca Gardelli
Coordination of multiagent systems is recently moving towards the application of techniques coming from the research context of complex systems: adaptivity and self-organisation are exploited in order to tackle openness, dynamism and unpredictability of typical multiagent systems applications. In this paper we focus on a coordination problem called collective sorting, where autonomous agents are charged with the task of moving tuples across different tuple spaces according to local criteria, resulting in the emergence of the complete clustering property. Using a library we developed for the Maude term rewriting system, we simulate the behaviour of this system and evaluate some solutions to this problem.
