Understanding Agent Systems
"The methodology presented constitutes a very significant step towards organising and structuring the diverse and disparate landscape of agent-based systems by applying formal methods to develop a defining and encompassing agent framework. The book will appeal equally to researchers, students, and professionals in industry interested in advanced applications of intelligent agent and multi-agent systems."--BOOK JACKET.
