The Marbles Manifesto: A Definition and Comparison of Cooperative Negotiation Schemes for Distributed Resource Allocation

Martin Frank, Alejandro Bugacov, Jinbo Chen, Gordon Dakin, Pedro Szekely, and Bob Neches

Marbles schemes are a family of cooperative and adaptive algorithms for distributed resource allocation problems. Long-term goals for these schemes are fault-tolerance and real-time performance in which a good timely solution is preferable to an optimal but too late solution. This paper reports work in progress where we compare the performance and analyze characteristics of different Marbles schemes and centralized solvers working on large scale and complex resource allocation problems.
