Abstract

We introduce the notion, issues, and challenges of dynamic coalition formation (DCF) among rational software agents in open, heterogeneous and work widely distributed environments such as the Internet and Web. Selected relevant approaches coping with only parts of the DCF problem domain in different disciplines such as decision theory, social reasoning, and machine learning are briefly discussed. Finally, we sketch one novel DCF scheme, and highlight some future research work towards a general framework of dynamic coalition formation.. The original document contains color images.
