Agent Oriented Software Engineering III 1st Edition by Giunchiglia Odell and Weiß

Over the past three decades, software engineers have derived a progressively better understanding of the characteristics of complexity in software. It is now widely recognized that interaction is probably the most important single characteristic of complex software. Software architectures that contain many dynamically interacting components, each with their own thread of control, and engineering in complex coordination protocols, are typically orders of magnitude more complex to correctly and efficiently engineer than those that simply compute a function of some input through a single thread of control. Unfortunately, it turns out that many (if not most) real-world applications have precisely these characteristics. As a consequence, a major research topic in computer science over at least the past two decades has been the development of tools and techniques to model, understand, and implement systems in which interaction is the norm.
