In this paper we present a formal model of Multiagent Systems to analyze the relations of power and dependence underlying group behaviors such as cooperation. Inspired by the work of Castelfranchi we define these relations by means of a description of goals and skills of single agents. We show how our framework can be used to describe social and organizational structures as emergent properties of a collection of individuals.

Abstract

In this paper we present a formal model of Multiagent Systems to analyze the relations of power and dependence underlying group behaviors such as cooperation. Inspired by the work of Castelfranchi we define these relations by means of a description of goals and skills of single agents. We show how our framework can be used to describe social and organizational structures as emergent properties of a collection of individuals.
