A Market Simulation with Aglets
Now we have implemented the simulation using the Aglets [TM] technology . Aglets are Java [TM] objects that can move from one host on the network to another and can communicate with other aglets by message passing. By using aglets, we can construct a market dynamically. That is, we can add or delete agents which participate in a market at any time and can watch the market status by sending various kinds of observer aglets.
In this talk, I will present a demonstration of the simulation using aglets and discuss the results of it.
