Social Pathologies of Adaptive Agents

David Jensen and Victor Lesser

We describe, briefly characterize, and give examples of social pathologies of multiagent systems. Social pathologies are system behaviors in which two or more agents interact such that improvements in local performance do not improve system performance. They are widely observed in both natural and artificial systems.
