Evidence-based trust: A mathematical model geared for multiagent systems
Yonghong Wang, Munindar P. Singh
Article No.: 14
DOI: 10.1145/1867713.1867715

An evidence-based account of trust is essential for an appropriate treatment of application-level interactions among autonomous and adaptive parties. Key examples include social networks and service-oriented computing. Existing approaches either...

A self-organization mechanism based on cross-entropy method for P2P-like applications
Gang Chen, Abdolhossein Sarrafzadeh, Chor Ping Low, Liang Zhang
Article No.: 15
DOI: 10.1145/1867713.1867716

P2P-like applications are quickly gaining popularity in the Internet. Such applications are commonly modeled as graphs with nodes and edges. Usually nodes represent running processes that exchange information with each other through communication...
