Abstract:

We focus on distributed algorithms for mobile agents. We define a mobile agent and discuss basic properties and models. We present some interesting problems in the area. We discuss advantages of using mobile agents as opposed to static agents and also discuss security issues. We focus on the gathering problem and present recent algorithms and related work.
