A multi-agent system (MAS) is a network aimed to solve problems that exceed the individual capabilities of agents, without having a central control unit. Although wireless channels provide a more suitable application environment than the wired channels, the studies on the problems that may arise when MAS is implemented on wireless channels are limited in the literature. Wireless channel applications of MAS are more vulnerable to security problems or errors arising from the characteristics of the channels. This study aims to investigate the effect of jammers that can be encountered in wireless communication networks using Monte Carlo simulations under various performance criteria.
