Conventions, Social Order, and the Two Coordinations.
Ever since Hayek's 1937 classic, "Economics and Knowledge," Austrians and other sympathetic writers have rightly emphasized study of the coordination properties of an economic system.
In particular, Klein is wrong to argue that one of his meanings of coordination corresponds to the Hayekian use of the term, whereas the other sense of coordination matches up with the modern (post-Schelling) game theoretic usage.
To understand the distinction Klein wishes to draw for the usage of the noun coordination, it is probably easiest to focus on the different meanings of the verb coordinate.
In the second, we can say that one achieves coordination with the friend.
The first sense of coordination (such as coordinating the colors in a room) shall be termed "concatenate coordination," whereas the second sense (such as coordinating with a friend to go to a movie) shall be termed "mutual coordination.
The coordination is partitioned into intra-role and inter-role coordinations and distributed among roles and coordinators, respectively.
The ARC model is a role-based coordination model developed to address three main concerns inherent in an ODE system: dynamicity, scalability, and stringent QoS requirements.
Keywords: coordination models, actors, roles, coordinators, open distributed and embedded systems
What we need is a model to study QoS aware interaction, or coordination, among distributed computational entities in ODE systems.
The key technical challenge is that coordination is necessary, and that coordination itself is subject to QoS constraints.
In this paper, we present a framework for developing ODE applications based on a role-based distributed coordination model, the Actor, Role and Coordinator (ARC) [44] model.
