Sample text

He groups his agent into Philanthropic, Reciprocative or Selfish and compares the evolving structure. In comparison, we assume that agents are selfish and their wellbeing is more important that that of the network. We do not try to create a system of social cooperation but instead create a system where efficient agent interaction will lead to social welfare as a by product. Yu and Singh [7] studied a dynamic pricing mechanism with the focus of studying the properties of incentive based models. In our simulation, we keep our incentive mechanism as basic as possible with fixed pricing policies.

Sen [5] compared the behavior of Philanthropic agents to Reciprocative agents and studied a probabilistic model of Reciprocity to increase cooperation among agents. Once again Sen’s work is limited to focus on the social aspect of agent behavior. He groups his agent into Philanthropic, Reciprocative or Selfish and compares the evolving structure. In comparison, we assume that agents are selfish and their wellbeing is more important that that of the network. We do not try to create a system of social cooperation but instead create a system where efficient agent interaction will lead to social welfare as a by product.

Under Philanthropy, agents respond to each other freely. Thus each agent receives the best responses that it can from its surrounding network. Additionally, the number of interactions in the network is high. 18 P. P. Singh Figure 1(a) also shows that under Reciprocity, the performance of each agent is significantly lower because fewer interactions take place. This is especially so for agents who do not contribute to the network. Under Incentives, the number of responses an agent receives is proportional to the number of responses it gives.
