In science:

Finally, the third rule says that if the price can be negotiated and there is enough merchandise in the warehouse, the seller agent evaluates the price to propose to the buyer agent (eval-mean is a private action) and decides to send a counter-proposal to it.
Logic-Based Specification Languages for Intelligent Software Agents
We are assuming that the buyer agent is able to perform an eval-counter-proposal action to evaluate the seller agent’s proposal: the seller agent must know the exact action syntax if it wants that the buyer agent understands and satisfies its requ est.
Logic-Based Specification Languages for Intelligent Software Agents
The advantage of increased realism of agent-based models (ABMs) is counter-balanced by the relative lack of mathematical tools for their development and analysis.

While located at a vertex vi, the agent perceives the edges of Gvis incident to vi in counter-clockwise order, starting with the boundary edge (vi, vi+1 ) (cf.
Simple Agents Learn to Find Their Way: An Introduction on Mapping Polygons
The counter-clockwise ordering of the edges at a vertex is the only means of orientation that the agent has when deciding a move.

After its tour of the boundary, the agent has gathered a list of the angle measurements at every vertex, ordered as they appear along the boundary in counter-clockwise order.

In that setting, for every pair of arcs emanating from its location, the agent is able to distinguish whether the counter-clockwise angle formed by these two arcs is convex (≤ π) or reflex (> π) (cf.

But if we just define a social environment as any environment where we include other agents, we may have counter-intuitive situations.
On the influence of intelligence in (social) intelligence testing environments
The necessity for each agent to take into account the present values of its own position may be seen by the following counter-example.
