Terms and Concepts Related to Software Agent Technology

Years ago I spent quite a bit of time constructing a list of terms related to software agent technology. I have already publish the main list — Software Agent Technology Terms and Concepts. This second list is related terms from fields other than software agent technology itself which intersect with software agent technology.

This list had previously been published on the web in a now-defunct web page — http://agtivity.com/related_terms.htm.

I last edited this list in 2009. I’m sure additional terms and concepts have evolved since then, but the overall coverage is probably still fairly valid.

In any case, here is the list of terms and concepts that are not for software agent technology per se, but somehow peripherally related to software agent technology:
