In [26], we postulated that a Regret Management system would have the following properties (now numbered, in no particular order): 1. It is capable of assessing to some value the amount of regret a truster has after a trustee transgresses. 2. It is capable of ensuring that the transgressor is ‘assigned’ that regret – that is, punished in some material (meaningful to the transgressor) way in a form proportional to the truster’s regret. 3. It is open and clear enough, and ‘trusted’ by both parties to be able to make these things happen.

First, that the amount of trust that existed, as well as the Cooperation Threshold, are important aspects in the regret measurement, and second, that the relationship itself is of potential importance in the final analysis. This is consistent with [53]’s analysis of Calculus-Based, Knowledge-Based, and Identification-Based Trust, and goes a little way toward not only answering what it meant, but also how it feels, for our agent. 8) Ix (x y) is the importance, to x, of the relationship x y – see below for more discussion of this; C Tx (y, α)t is the Cooperation Threshold for x at that situation.
