Abstract


This paper concerns material agent societies, that is, agent societies inhabited by material agents. The paper introduces the concept of energy system of a material agent society, as the organizational sub-system of the society that is responsible for the coordination of the production, distribution and consumption of energy in that society. Two models (labor-based and work-based) for energy systems, the conditions of their equilibrated functioning are formulated, and the concept of energy autonomous material agent society are formally defined. The possible relation between economic and political systems, and energy systems, in material agent societies, is indicated.
