There is a lot of confusion on what the environment of a multi-agent system (MAS) comprises. Sometimes, researchers refer to the environment as the logical entity of a MAS in which the agents and other resources are embedded. Sometimes, the notion of environment is used to refer to the software infrastructure on which the MAS is executed. Sometimes, environment even refers to the underlying hardware infrastructure on which the MAS runs.
