Item description for Agent-Oriented Programming: From Prolog to Guarded Definite Clauses (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by Matthew M. Huntbach...

The authors present a systematic development of the concurrent object-oriented agent programming language Guarded Definite Clauses (GDC). In contrast to other languages used in agent programming, like Java, Telescript, and Agent-TCL, this language is derived from the artificial intelligence programming tradition and emphasizes AI applications. The first part of the book is devoted to the principled evolution of the paradigm GDC; during the course of this evolution, the reader can also learn a lot about the history and the dramatically changing fortune, booms, and busts, of AI. In the second part, the paradigm is evaluated for application in various fields including parallel distributed search, distributed constraint solving, meta-interpretation, partial evaluation, and robotics and multi-agent systems. The book is written for students and professionals in agent programming or in AI programming in general.

Reviews - What do customers think about Agent-Oriented Programming: From Prolog to Guarded Definite Clauses (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)?

A Classic 'Logic-based' AI programming book!  Oct 27, 2000
Ringwood and Huntbach were my professors in graduate school. They taught us a course titled Multi Agent Systems. Much of the areas covered in those lectures find their way in this superb account on AI programming.

The first few chapters are accessible to readers without a strong AI background. The material gets more involving as we go through the book.

Interestingly, the book develops the idea of 'agent-oriented' programming chronologically from the the days preceeding the Fifth generation project to present day multi-agent technologies.

I would highly recommend the book to all AI students, researchers and practitioners.
