When agents adapt to other agents, the behavior of one agent affects the behaviors of other agents. What makes this interactive situation both interesting and difficult to evaluate is that the aggregate outcomes needs to be evaluated, not merely how agents behave within the constraints of their own environments. The chapter is thus interested in answering the following questions: How do agents, who interact and adapt to each other, produce the aggregate outcomes of interest? How can the microscopic agent behaviors that contribute to consistency in behaviors of interest at the macroscopic level be identified?

Keywords:   collective, adaptive agents, reinforcement learning, social reinforcement, aggregate outcome
