Abstract

An autonomous trading agent is a complex piece of software that must operate in a competitive economic environment. We identify the problem of decision coordination as a crucial element in the design of an agent for TAC SCM, and we review the published literature on agent design to discover a wide variety of approaches to this problem. We believe that the existence of such variety is an indication that much is yet to be learned about designing such agents.
