Abstract
This paper presents a heuristic approach based on answer set program in bilateral negotiation. The well-founded semantics for general logic program is used to simplify the process of negotiation. In this approach, demands of each side in negotiation are transformed into a general logic program. The process of negotiation contains two key steps: selecting a pair of answer sets as demand in negotiation and using well-founded semantics to update trade sets of negotiators. Besides, in order to ensure the astringency of approach, some heuristic tips are applied in process. Also, a number of experiments have been done to assess the performance of this method. Results of experiments in general show that this approach could get reasonable results as soon as possible.
