The Emergence and Collapse of the Self Monitoring Center in Multi-agent Systems
We studied the emergence and collapse of the central agent in a system which consists of homogeneous agents. To do this study, we defined a simple model of a situation, i.e., cooperations with the exchange of operational demands. As a result, an agent which gives orders as a central power and has a microcosm of the whole system appeared. Next we pointed out an efficiency problem and argued how to resolve it. We also shows its side effects relating to collapses of the central agents.
