A Multiple Trading Study of Providers and Consumer Based on Game Theory for P2P E-Commerce


Article Preview

For P2P e-commerce environment of autonomy, heterogeneous, distribution and parallelism, considering behavior characteristics of providers and consumers, proposes a multilateral game model of business and consumers, then puts forward a cooperative algorithm based on game theory for multiple trading. Experimental results show that the algorithm is realized adaptive for dynamic change of commodity supply and demand and overall efficiency.
