[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement] **** NEW BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT - THE AGENT MODELING LANGUAGE - AML ****An edition of the Whitestein Series in Software Agent Technologies and Autonomic Computing.
This book is an introduction and reference guide to AML - the Agent Modeling Language. AML is a mature, comprehensive, and industry-strength language for modeling software agents and multi-agent systems. By far the majority of contemporary software development processes make use of UML modeling for visually documenting aspects of requirements capture, software analysis, design and deployment. Thus, given that software agents and multi-agent systems are essentially a paradigmatic extension of object orientation principles, it is clear that a properly formulated extension to UML is feasible for software agent modeling. AML is this extension. It addresses the particular characteristics unique to multi-agent systems including entities, behavior abstraction and decomposition, social aspects, mental aspects, communicative interactions, observations and effecting interactions, mobility, deployment, services and ontologies.
Further details on the AML book, including sample pages and ordering information, are available from the publishers website or from Amazon.com.
