Abstract

This paper discusses a multi-agent simulation theory which is serving as a formal specification to guide the develop ment of a multi-agent simulation platform. We have ex tended an existing simulation language: GLIDER, with abstractions to model systems where autonomous entities (agents) perceive and act upon their environments. Thus far, we have completed the development of the platform that implements the theory and we are now applying it to the study of multi-agent systems. In particular, an Imple mentation on Biocomplexity is briefly discussed in the pa per.
