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; learning in multi-agent systems; example systems.

There are no prerequisites for this course. There are strong ties to Artificial Intelligence (so having taken CPSC 433 definitely does not hurt), but we will introduce the necessary concepts from AI in this course.
