Task Suspension in Agent Systems

08361.FarwerBerndt.Paper.1638.pdf (0.4 MB)


We discuss the similarity of a recent approach to task suspension in agent programming languages with an earlier approach to formalising preemption using a class of Petri nets, called M-nets. We argue that the theory of agent programming would benefit from adopting certain features of the Petri-net approach, and thus making further results for Petri nets applicable in the agent domain.
