CPSC 601.72 and CPSC 599.30: Foundations of Multi-Agent Systems -
This course has two numbers so that it is open to both graduate and
undergraduate students. There is a limit on the number of students
that can take this course and graduate students have priority.
In order to achieve this, undergraduate students need my approval
for taking this course.

Description of the course
The course covers the following topics:
Modeling of agents; properties of multi-agent systems; communication
between agents; interaction and cooperation concepts; forming and
maintaining organizations; competitive agent environments; example
If time permits, we will also look into learning in multi-agent systems.
There are no prerequisites for this course. There are strong ties to
Artificial Intelligence (so having taken CPSC 533 definitely does not
hurt), but we will introduce the necessary concepts from AI in this
|| to an explanation of the assessment of the students
taking the course.
