Abstract: The problem of 8 Queens is one of the most well-known combinatorial problems. In this article multi-agent evolutionary-based solution for ‘8 Queens’ problem is proposed. In the multi-agent solution each Queen (or other chess-man) gets a software agent that uses a 'trial-and-error' method in asynchronous and parallel decision making on selecting new position for queens. As the result the solution is found in distributed manner without main control center that provides a number of benefits, for example, introducing new types of chess-man or changing constraints in real time. Two main strategies of Queen’s decision making process has been considered and compared in experiments: random generation of the next move and conflict-solving negotiations between the agents. Experiments’ results show significant acceleration of the decision making process in case of negotiation-based strategy. This solution was developed for training course for students of Computer Science as a methodical basis f or designing swarm-based multi-agent systems for solving such complex problems as resource allocation and scheduling, pattern recognition or text understanding.
