Artificial intelligence – agents and environments prepared by Pinar Duygulu at Bilkent University. This book consists of five parts and have 44 pages, starting agents and environment then rationality, PEAS (Performance measure, Environment, Actuators, Sensors), environment types and Agent types. This book was included in a course of CS461 artificial intelligence studied at Bilkent University in spring 2008.

Conclusion of artificial intelligence – agents and environments:
This book is the 1st in a series on artificial intelligence – agents and environments. It gives an introduction to the topic with an emphasis on the usage of agent-oriented design. Topics include agents, environments, agent movement, and agent embodiment. It also delivers an introduction to programming in NetLogo. Supplementary the book is a series of exercises and NetLogo models (with source code and documentation) which can be run directly from an applet or downloaded.
