    ==================================================

    Soft Computing Agents: New Trends for Designing Autonomous Systems
    V. Loia, University of Salerno - S. Sessa, University of Naples (Eds.)

    ==================================================

    Series: Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing, Volume 75
    2001, 221 pp., 82 figs., 13 tabs, ISBN 3-7908-1404-0, DM 118, approx. USD 51
    Physica-Verlag (http://www.springer.de) Heidelberg, published in June 2001

    In the existing literature the intersection of agent technology with soft
    computing is a very recent and
    attractive issue. The book is devoted to a unifying perspective of this
    topic. It contains contributions
    by well-known authors whose expertice is widely recognized in these crossing
    areas. Particular
    emphasis is devoted to advanced research projects with Web-related
    technologies.
    Fundamental topics explored in this volume are: -formal theories and logics
    to represent and handle
    imprecise communication acts among communities of agents; -soft computing
    approaches to define
    distributed problem-solving techniques to represent and reason about
    large-scale control systems;
    - decomposition of a complex system into autonomous or semiautonomous agents
    through
    evolutionary models; - enrichment of agent programming paradigm for
    cooperative soft-computing processing.
