Bases: negmas.situated.TimeInAgreementMixin, negmas.situated.World

join(x: negmas.situated.Agent, simulation_priority: int = 0)[source]

Returns:

assign_managers(factory_managers=Iterable[Union[str, Type[FactoryManager], FactoryManager]], params: Iterable[Dict[str, Any]] | None = None) None[source]

Assigns existing factories to new factory managers created from the given types and parameters or manager objects.

Parameters:
  • factory_managers – An iterable of FactoryManager objects type names or FactoryManager types to assign to

  • params – parameters of the newly created managers

Remarks:

  • factories are assigned in the same order they exist in the local factories attribute cycling through the input managers or types/params

  • If a FactoryManager object is given instead of a type or a string in the factory_managers collection, and the number of factory_managers is less than the number of factories in the world causing this object to cycle for more than one factory, it is assigned to the first such factory but then deep copies of it with new ids and names are assigned to the rest of the factories. That ensures that each manager has exactly one factory and that all factories are assigned exactly one unique manager.
