Bordini, Rafael H.; Dastani, Mehdi.; Dix, Jürgen; El Fallah Seghrouchni, Amal (Eds.), "Multi-Agent Programming : Languages, Platforms and Applications (Series: Multiagent Systems, Artificial Societies, and Simulated Organizations)", Springer, 2005 (October).
Description: 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.
The book consists of three parts. Part I describes four multi-agent programming languages that are based on computational logic or process algebra. These languages are Jason, 3APL, IMPACT, and CLAIM/SyMPA. Part II presents three multi-agent programming languages that extend or are based on Java. These programming languages are JADE, Jadex and JACK. Part III provides two significant industry specific applications: 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.
