|In this article, we focus on the role of the environment
in a self-organising system and how to apply self-organisation principles
to build a multi-agent system (MAS) environment. We discuss a design
methodology for complex systems with emergent properties: our approach
mainly relies on the use of formal analysis tools and languages in
order to provide better guarantees of effective global system behaviour.
In order to explain the details of the methodology, we analyse a
case of dynamic resource allocation strategy for a MAS environment.
