CSCE 475/875: Multiagent Systems
Tuesdays/Thursdays 9:30–10:45AM
Classroom: TBA
Instructor: Professor Leen-Kiat Soh (e-mail: lksoh@cse.unl.edu)

Class Description: This class will introduce you to the research topic of multiagent systems (MAS), including what a MAS is, what agents are, and what are the disadvantages and advantages of such a system in different types of applications. We will present some background issues in distributed problem solving (e.g., constraint satisfaction) and planning (e.g., optimization) and build on the non-cooperative game theory. Then, equipped with the background knowledge, we will look into learning in multiagent systems and agent communication. Then we will cover formal agent topics such as social choice, mechanism design, and auctions. We will also look into agent-based modeling and multiagent simulation, swarm intelligence, and decentralized planning.

The course materials in this class are based on the textbook and journal/conference papers.

The class will have 3-4 game days, mid-term exam(s), pop quizzes, and seminars.
