As an introduction to agent-oriented (AO) methodologies, we first describe the characteristics of both agents and multi-agent systems (MASs). This leads to a discussion of what makes an AO methodology that can be used to build an MAS. Finally, we briefly introduce the ten methodologies that are described in the remaining chapters in this book.
