Agent-Oriented Software Engineering XIII: 13th International by Jörg Müller, Massimo Cossentino

By Jörg Müller, Massimo Cossentino

This publication constitutes the completely refereed post-proceedings of the thirteenth Agent-Oriented software program Engineering (AOSE) workshop, held on the eleventh foreign convention on independent brokers and Multiagent structures, AAMAS 2012, in Valencia, Spain, in June 2012. This quantity offers nine completely revised papers chosen from 24 submissions in addition to invited articles via top researchers within the box. The papers hide a wide diversity of subject matters regarding software program engineering of agent-based structures, with specific consciousness to the mixing of thoughts and strategies from multi-agent platforms with fresh programming languages, systems, and validated software program engineering methodologies.

Ruby Under a Microscope: An Illustrated Guide to Ruby Internals

Ruby is a strong programming language with a spotlight on simplicity, yet underneath its based syntax it plays numerous unseen tasks.

Ruby lower than a Microscope can provide a hands-on examine Ruby's middle, utilizing large diagrams and thorough reasons to teach you the way Ruby is carried out (no C abilities required). writer Pat Shaughnessy takes a systematic strategy, laying out a chain of experiments with Ruby code to take you behind the curtain of ways programming languages paintings. You'll even locate details on JRuby and Rubinius (two replacement implementations of Ruby), in addition to in-depth explorations of Ruby's rubbish assortment algorithm.

Ruby lower than a Microscope will educate you:

How a number of machine technology thoughts underpin Ruby's advanced implementation
How Ruby executes your code utilizing a digital machine
How periods and modules are an identical inside of Ruby
How Ruby employs algorithms initially constructed for Lisp
How Ruby makes use of grammar ideas to parse and comprehend your code
How your Ruby code is translated right into a diverse language through a compiler
No programming language should be a black field. even if you're already intrigued via language implementation or simply are looking to dig deeper into Ruby, you'll locate Ruby below a Microscope a desirable technique to develop into a greater programmer.

Covers Ruby 2. x, 1. nine and 1. eight

Genetic Programming Theory and Practice IX

Those contributions, written via the most important overseas researchers and practitioners of Genetic Programming (GP), discover the synergy among theoretical and empirical effects on real-world difficulties, generating a finished view of the state-of-the-art in GP. issues comprise: modularity and scalability; evolvability; human-competitive effects; the necessity for vital high-impact GP-solvable problems;; the hazards of seek stagnation and of removing paths to suggestions; the necessity for novelty; empowering GP seek with professional wisdom; additionally, GP symbolic regression is carefully mentioned, addressing such themes as assured reproducibility of SR; validating SR effects, measuring and controlling genotypic complexity; controlling phenotypic complexity; settling on, tracking, and fending off over-fitting; discovering a finished selection of SR benchmarks, evaluating SR to desktop studying.

Sample text

The Representative role is the interface of the holon outside the world. Finally, the Peer role identifies the default members, generally they perform tasks assigned by the Head. This organizational schema will be well-formed applying the following structural norms: 1. A moderated group must contain at least one individual playing the Representative role. 2. It must contain at least one individual playing the Head role. 3. It can include from zero to a generic number of Peer players. 4. Head and Peer are exclusive roles.

The Organizational Links define the way in which the social exchanges between Agent Roles occur [12]. The most significant difference compared to ASPECS is the introduction in the Agency Domain of the Norms. A general definition of Norm is an authoritative standard or model. We have specialized this concept making explicit different kinds of Norm: Behavioral, Structural and Adaptive Norms. al [3] define “a principle of right action binding upon the members of a group and serving to guide, control, or regulate proper and acceptable behavior ”, similar to the concepts of Regulative norms described as the expected contributions to the social system [23].

The Structural and Adaptive Norms are instead two new kinds of norm we propose in order to regulate the static and dynamic aspects of an organization separately. The Structural Norms define the static structural aspect of the system at the design time, that is the initial composition defined by the designer for the organization to fulfill its objectives. The Adaptive Norms govern the state transition of the organization from a given configuration to a new one according to needs emerging from environmental changes.
