Multi-Agent Programming is an essential reference for anyone interested in the most up-to-date developments in MAS programming. While previous research has focused on the development of formal and informal approaches to analyze and specify Multi-Agent Systems, this book focuses on the development of programming languages and tools which not only support MAS programming, but also implement key concepts of MAS in a unified framework. Part I describes approaches that rely on computational logic or process algebra a Jason, 3APL, IMPACT, and CLAIM/SyMPA. Part II presents languages and platforms that extend or are based on Java a JADE, Jadex and JACKTM. Part III provides two significant industry specific applications a The DEFACTO System for coordinating human-agent teams for disaster response, and the ARTIMIS rational dialogue agent technology. Also featured are seven appendices for quick reference and comparison.Before moving to Carnegie Mellon, he worked at the University of Southern Californiaa#39;s Information Sciences Institute.
