- On fuzzy projection-based utility decomposition in compound multi-agent negotiations
- Brzostowski, Jakub; Kowalczyk, Ryszard
- In the process of compound multi-agent negotiation a number of agents concurrently negotiate with one or more counterparts in order to satisfy the individual preferences that lead to the collective maximization of the overall utility function imposed on the compound service. In order to perform this task the overall utility function has to be decomposed into individual single-service utility functions. This problem is not trivial, especially in compound multi-agent negotiations involving more complex aggregation patters of negotiated issues. In this paper we propose an approach for derivation of the individual utility functions based of the principles of fuzzy set projection. We also propose a way of modifying the initially generated utility functions in the case where the agreement was not reached with those functions, what allows for reaching an agreement in repeated negotiation.
