Munindar P. Singh's Papers

The first book on Multiagent Systems: now available for free download

These are many of the papers authored or coauthored by me. Other publications are accessible from the links above. Most of the papers below have been published; some are unpublished; I drop recent drafts here. Comments are welcome on all. The papers are loosely classified into the following main categories, within which I have some additional keywords. Papers in each category are (approximately) sorted latest first.

In an attempt to improve readability, I have organized my papers into two main tracks: left-brain and right-brain work, if you like :-). For each track, the dates in the left column refer to the version dates.

Please let me know if you are looking for one of my papers that is not listed below or if any of the following links are broken.
