Model-Checking Auctions, Coalitions and Trust
In this paper we tackle the verification of basic auction models that are at the heart of many market-based multi-agent systems. Specifically, we program auctions in a BDI-based programming language and then use agent model checking to verify logical properties concerning time, beliefs and goals within the multi-agent system. The basic auction model is then extended with coalition formation and trust, and verification of these aspects is carried out.[Full Paper]
