On helping behavior in cooperative environments

This paper concerns the helping behavior in multi-agent systems. Helping actions represent an interesting and rich testbed for examining the reasons for cooperative behavior in multi-agent systems. Starting from previous studies on multi-agent dependence relations, a basic definition of help is given, and some of the motivations for helping are briefly discussed. Moreover, an experimental environment for simulating agents that can perform helping behavior is described, and some preliminary results are presented.
