Multi-agent research in the knobotics group

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 830)


This is a short overview of research in multi-agent systems within our research group at Stanford University, knobotics. We discuss research that centers around the formal ascription of mental attitudes to computational entities, the framework of agent oriented programming (AOP), and distributed coordination mechanisms.
