Abstract

Mobile agent systems are complex distributed systems that are dynamically composed from autonomous agents. It is difficult to guarantee agent interoperability since they are often developed independently. We propose a formal approach to ensuring agent interoperabiilty which relies on decomposition of a specification of the multiagent application into a set of specifications of the agent roles. We use refinement in the Event-B framework to formally define the process of decomposition.
