In science:

Finally, Plans(Π) denotes the set of plans which are solutions to a given multi-agent planning problem Π.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
Finally, P [i..∞] denotes the i-th suffix of the plan P , i.e., P [i..∞] = P [i..|P |]. P1 · P2 is said to be a decomposition of a multi-agent plan P iff P = P1 · P2 .
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
Algorithm 1 lists the original multi-agent planning algorithm MA-Plan by Brafman and Domshlak in .
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
Algorithm 1 MA-Plan(Π): Input: A multi-agent planning problem Π = (A, s0 , Sg ).
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
In the case such a plan completion does not exist, the process continues by testing longer candidate plans.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
Our motivation is however a decentralized planning/plan repair algorithm followed by a decentralized plan execution.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
Multi-agent plan repair Consider a multi-agent planning problem Π = (A, s0 , Sg ) and a plan P solving Π.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
The weak and the strong plan execution failures are, however, just two examples of a plan failure.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
Since we focus on multi-agent planning problems, which in a sense enforce coordination among the members of a multi-agent team, we firstly introduce the concept of k-coordinated multi-agent planning problems.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
We informally say that multi-agent planning problems leading to plans containing coordination points (public actions) placed relatively frequently throughout the plans are tightly coordinated.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
More formally, a multi-agent planning problem Π is tightly coordinated if it is k-coordinated and k is relatively low in comparison to the lengths of plans from Plans(Π).
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
In the case k is relatively high w.r.t. the plan lengths, we say that the problem is loosely coordinated and finally, if the plans do not involve public actions, i.e., coordination is not needed at all, we say the problem is uncoordinated.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
When applied to tightly coordinated planning problems, multiagent plan repair algorithms producing more preserving repairs than replanning feature a lower average communication complexity than replanning.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
Note, that all plans from Plans(Π0 ) are back-on-track repairs of the original plan.
Decentralized Multi-agent Plan Repair in Dynamic Environments
The length of the preserved suffix of the original plan provides a handle on the repair quality ordering of the plans.
