The Dec-POMDP Page

The decentralized partially observable Markov decision process (Dec-POMDP) is a very general model for coordination among multiple agents. It is a probabilistic model that can consider uncertainty in outcomes, sensors and communication (i.e., costly, delayed, noisy or nonexistent communication). This web site was created to provide information about the model and algorithms used to solve Dec-POMDPs.

See the links below or a recent book chapter or CDC-13 survey paper for more details.

There is also a new book on Dec-POMDPs, A Concise Introduction to Decentralized POMDPs.
