Message Transport Framework, Agent Based Simulation, Inter-Agent Communication


Multi-agent based simulations have been shown to have particular utility in large-scale social and biological systems. To deliver a realistic simulation for such complex systems, agents should be light-weight and inter agent communication should be efficient and scalable. In this paper, we propose a new light-weight message transport framework for building efficient, flexible, and scalable inter-agent communication in multi-agent based simulations. We provide both theoretical analysis and initial performance results for validation.
