    In this paper, we clarify the properties of the contract net protocol based on its formal specification. To specify the contract net protocol, we propose a formal specification method for an agent system. In this method, agents are modeled as communicating finite state machines. To deal with the behavior of agents and its time passage explicitly, we incorporate the concept of time into the communicating finite state machine. The contract net protocol is specified based on the specification method proposed in this paper. From the specification, we analyze the possibility about agent deadlock and its avoidance solution.
