AbstractThis special issue focuses on optimization in multi-agent systems (OptMASs), a sub-field of MASs research that poses novel research challenges. OptMASs is concerned with solving MAS problems using optimization techniques that cannot ignore the active participation of the actors in the system. Therefore, OptMASs must cope with the distributed nature of MASs, where agents reside on different computational units that may be prone to failures and have different computation/communication capabilities. Furthermore, it must consider that agents may be acting on behalf of different stakeholders, each with its own aims and objectives. Taking into account such assumptions leads to very hard optimization problems that are substantially different from problems traditionally dealt with in other areas. The objective of this special issue is to provide a detailed sample of recent advances in algorithms, theories and applications in the field of OptMASs. The seven papers included in this special issue are intended to outline the current state of the art in the field. © 2013 The Author.
