On the Use of Reduction Relations to Relate Different Types of Agent Models

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


This paper focuses on relationships between agent models and their physical realisations. Approaches on reduction from philosophical literature are analysed in a formalised manner, and extended by incorporating context-dependency w.r.t. specific makeups for their realisations. It is shown how these context-dependent reduction approaches can be translated into each other and how they can be applied to relate agent models. © 2011 - IOS Press and the authors.
