Representing Utility for Automated Negotiation
Karp, Alan H.
Keyword(s): utility functions; automated negotiation
Abstract: We present a means to represent utility, the measure of goodness of a possible deal. This representation includes a number of features necessary to represent complex requirements, such as time dependence, explicit combinations of terms, and cross dependences. The formulation is closely tied to the form used to represent contracts, which makes it useful for automated negotiation software. Notes:
