Executive Summary

In recent work a generic categorical model for MAS has been introduced leading to the category MAS (cf. [Pfa05] for a first step). In that category the objects are agents of various types and the morphisms represent all kinds of relations between the agents, the authors call it general communication and cooperation arrows. This general communication and cooperation structure is represented by a corresponding arrow diagram, called Base Diagram of a MAS. Of basic importance for their work is the observation that every arrow diagram (i.e. directed graph, possibly with labels on the arrows) can be interpreted as a category named PATH - c.f. [Pfa94] - morphisms are sequences (paths) of arrows.
