The course discusses new and established research for coordination and distributed decision making in multiagent systems. Based on formal grounding in game theory and mechanism design, different interaction situations that autonomous agents have to solve are discussed for both, cooperative and antagonistic settings: task allocation and coordination in cooperative systems; social choice (voting), auctions and markets, negotiation and coalition formation for egoistic agents.
Course period: October 10, 2022 - January 31, 2023
