Abstract
The global model of a complex phenomenon can emerge
from the cooperative negotiation of agents embedding lo-
cal partial models of the phenomenon. We adopted this ap-
proach to model complex physiological phenomena, such as
those related to the metabolism of glucose-insulin and to the
determination of the heart rate (pacing). In this paper we
formally describe and analyze the properties of a coopera-
tive negotiation protocol we developed to allow the agents
to produce a global coherent model of a physiological phe-
nomenon. We concentrate on the study of the conditions un-
der which an agreement is guaranteed to be reached. We
also show details of an application concerning the pacing
problem.
