This paper is concerned with the problem of interactions among agents and how agents make decisions under this framework. Researchers contribute a lot to various interactions involved in agents and propose models of decision making process to portray how the agents behave. Based on relationship coefficient, a framework of interaction among agents is presented which is ranging from collaboration to antagonism. Furthermore, a model of decision making is put forward according to this framework. This model is illustrated and contrasted with an instance of game theory.
