Intelligent autonomous agents, designed to automate and simplify many aspects of our society, will increasingly be required to also interact with other agents autonomously. Where agents interact, they are likely to encounter resource constraints. For example, agents managing household appliances to optimize electricity usage might need to share...

For instance, loads such as heat pumps or...

Multi-agent planning problems with constraints on global resource consumption occur in several domains. Existing algorithms for solving Multi-agent Markov Decision Processes can compute policies that meet a resource constraint in expectation, but these policies provide no guarantees on the probability that a resource constraint violation will...

Voting is a popular way of reaching decisions in multi-agent systems. Weighted voting in particular allows different agents to have varying levels of influence on the decision taken: each agent’s vote carries a weight, and a proposal is accepted if the sum of the weights of the agents in favor of the proposal is at least equal to a given quota....
