Designing Agent-Oriented Systems by Analysing Agent Interactions [chapter]

Simon Miles, Mike Joy, Michael Luck
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Agents as a basis for software engineering are useful because they provide a powerful and intuitive abstraction which can increase the comprehensiblity of a complex design.  ...  We suggest that this approach has the flexibility necessary to provide agent-oriented designs for open and complex applications, and has value for future maintenance and extension of these systems.  ...  The approach of agent interaction analysis, as suggested in this paper, clears the way for general effective methodologies targeted at the design of multi-agent systems for complex and open applications  ...
