Abstract : In the field of multi-agent systems, the concept of environment is omnipresent, though poorly defined. We argue here that depending on the modeling of space and of relations between agents, only a few efficient implementations can be set up, especially in simulation. The aim of this article is to formalize the core functions of environments, so as to highlight several possible implementations and their computational features (runtime efficiency, relevance of the knowledge representation, memory usage...). This unifying approach leads to the identification of elementary environments patterns. Thus, instead of the usual monolithic approach to "the environment" of a multi-agent system, we propose a decomposition based on these patterns, which allows to handle several environments if needed.
