Ask a question about: Bargaining
Respond to the question: game theory and XML?

06/28/2004 11:20 AM by JBI; game theory and XML
I'm doing a master's in information systems engineering and am leaning towards doing my dissertation on bargaining for service level agreements between autonomous agents in distributed systems. It struck me that it might be an interesting application, not least because it allows one to make stronger assumptions about the rationality of agents than might normally be the case.

I actually did my undergraduate degree in economics, and it had a reasonable emphasis on microeconomics and hence game theory, although I graduated in 1994 so it is fairly rusty. I was was wondering if anyone was aware of an XML (eXtensible Markup Language) schema for bargaining or game theory generally. I am interested as it might be used as the basis for shared semantics for negotiation in my particular case.
