About the Edition

In this thesis, we introduce a specification language (CASL) and verification environment (CASLve) for multiagent systems. We use the situation calculus [52] with Reiter"s solution to the frame problem [62]---enhanced with predicates to describe agents" knowledge [64], beliefs, and goals---to formally, perspicuously, and systematically describe the effects of actions on the world and the mental states of agents. We add INFORM, REQUEST, and CANCELREQUEST actions to model inter-agent communication, and investigate properties of multiagent knowledge change and goal change, as well as belief change. We use the notation of the concurrent, logic programming language ConGolog [17] to specify the behaviour of agents. ConGolog has a formal semantics defined in the situation calculus, which facilitates the process of reasoning about the behaviour of individual agents and the system as a whole. We provide an environment for verifying properties of CASL specifications, by encoding the situation calculus, its extensions to handle mental states, and ConGolog in the PVS verification system [54], and proving lemmas which are useful for verifying CASL specifications. These include proving that bounded-loop ConGolog programs terminate, and providing a framework far compositional verification of ConGolog programs. We then specify three multiagent systems using CASL and prove some properties of the specifications.

Abstract. The Cognitive Agents Specification Language (CASL) is a framework for specifying multiagent systems. It has a mix of declarative and procedural components to facilitate the specification and verification of complex multiagent systems. In this chapter, we describe CASL and a verification environment (CASLve) for it based on the PVS verification stevefrithphotography.com by: 6.

And because humans think and speak using cognitive terms such as beliefs, knowledge, desires, and intentions, it is more natural to use the same cognitive concepts when constructing agents and assigning tasks to them. Cognitive.

Systems whose capabilities and parameters are likely to need to change over time or across agents can also benefit from this advantage of MAS.

From a programmer’s perspective the modularity of multiagent systems can lead to simpler. Agents in a multiagent system frequently represent individuals, companies, or parts of companies. This means that there is an “underlying organizational context” [Jennings, ] in multiagent systems.

Therefore, one of the most important features of agents is their social ability. Like humans, they need to coordinate their activities. designers of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems. The goal of this chapter is not to present a comprehensive review of the research on learning agents (see Sen & Weiss,for that purpose) but rather to discuss important issues and give the reader some practical advice in designing learning agents.
