Abstract

This paper presents a framework to deal with influence in multiagent systems. Influence is defined as the impact that a participant could have on another participant, known as target. Influence could be either positive or negative, according to how this target assesses the outcomes of the operations this participant has carried out. The presented framework could be viewed from two different perspectives: knowledge perspective with goal and belief as main components and organisation perspectives with task and resource as main components.
