Establishing and maintaining cooperation is an enduring
problem in multi-agent systems and, although several solu-
tions exist, the increased use of online trading systems, peer-
to-peer networks, and ubiquitous computing environments
mean that it remains an important question. Environments
are emerging in which large numbers of agents are required
to cooperate, but where repeat interactions between agents
may be rare or non-existent. Most existing approaches to
cooperation rely on reciprocity to establish notions of trust
and reputation. However, where repeat interactions are rare
such approaches are not always effective. In this paper we
use ideas from biology and the social sciences to provide a
mechanism that supports cooperation in such environments.
