Multiagent Systems
As autonomous agents proliferate in the real world, it becomes increasingly important to consider their interactions. Distinct agents may be teammates, opponents, or have unrelated goals. Game theory is a powerful tool for considering relatively small-scale interactions. Different tools are needed for more complex systems.
