Colonies: a multi-agent approach to language generation

Erzsébet Csuhaj-Varjú Computer and Automation Rersearch Institute Hungarian Academy of Sciences

We discuss colonies, a variant of grammar systems, which are a generative framework introduced for modeling multi-agent systems motivated by subsumption architectures. We demonstrate that cooperating systems of very simple grammars are convenient tools for generating complicated languages and describing powerful language classes.
