Agent Environment and Knowledge in Distributed Join Calculus
Distributed join calculus can be used to formally reason about concurrent systems. This paper introduces notion of an environment where agents interact. Based on the introduced formalisms a notion of knowledge which is exchanged by facts and common to all agents is presented. Introduction of the environment and knowledge extends number of agent system which can be expressed using join calculus algebra.
