KTMAS: Analytic Modelling of the Dynamics of Multi-agent Systems

Multi-agents systems (MAS) have been introduced in the field
of artificial intelligence (AI) to denote a set of entities which act
and interact in intelligent (i.e., often: rational) ways. Beyond AI,
the application of results concerning MAS involves various other
scientific disciplines, such as: biology; sociology; finance; and

In the literature, a large number of models have been proposed
to describe the dynamics of MAS. Most of these are based on
simulations, limiting their validity to the particular scenarios
considered and to the specific choice of simulation parameters: In
order to derive more robust results, it is of interest to identify
viable analytic approaches.

Our framework is inspired by mathematical kinetic theories,
with the aim to obtain analytic results on the dynamics of MAS
from the description of the effects of single interactions among
agents. KTMAS can incorporate different types of interactions, and it
can be used to describe the dynamics of different features of MAS.

We present our research in the scope of the new disciplines
of econophysics, which can be used to model wealth evolution,
and sociophysics, which can be adopted to characterise opinion evolution.
