Logics for Strategic Reasoning: Recent Developments and Application to Mechanism Design

Thursday, December 14, 2023
Speaker(s) : Munyque Mittelmann (Univ. of Naples Frederico II)

In recent years a wealth of logic-based languages have been introduced to reason about the strategic abilities of autonomous agents in multi-agent systems. This talk presents some of these important logical formalisms, namely, the Alternating-time Temporal Logic and Strategy Logic. We discuss recent extensions of those formalisms to capture different degrees of satisfaction, as well as to handle uncertainty caused by the partial observability of agents and randomization of the environment intrinsic in MAS. Finally, we describe the recent application of those formalisms for Mechanism Design and explain how they can be used either to automatically check that a given mechanism satisfies some desirable property, or to produce a mechanism that does it.
