This book is based on the workshop on Adaptation and Learning in Multi-Agent Systems, held in conjunction with the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, IJCAI'95, in Montreal, Canada in August 1995.
The 14 thoroughly reviewed revised papers reflect the whole scope of current aspects in the field: they describe and analyze, both experimentally and theoretically, new learning and adaption approaches for situations in which several agents have to cooperate or compete. Also included, and aimed at the novice reader, are a comprehensive introductory survey on the area with 154 references listed and a subject index. As the first book solely devoted to this area, this volume documents the state of the art and is thus indispensable for anyone active or interested in the field.
