No free lunches in Multi-agent Systems,: a Characteristic Distribution approach to game theoretic modelling
Blekinge Institute of Technology, Department of Software Engineering and Computer Science2001 (English)Conference paper (Refereed) Published
We introduce the notion of Characteristic Distributions which is a way of representing information about the payoffs of different behaviors in a Multi-agent System. Me discuss how they can be used to simplify and structure the analysis of strategies and prove i) the existence of optimal environments, given a certain behavior and ii) that all behaviors payoff equally, when taken over all possible environments (no free lunch theorem for strategies).
