Networks, Crowds, and Markets Book

The book titled Networks, Crowds, and Markets by David Easley and Jon Kleinberg is now available to download freely from the link above. The current version is a pre-publication draft.

As is evident from reading the outline, there is a lot of overlap between the research present in this book and multiagent research. They both deal with game theory, auctions, markets, bargaining and, most importantly, search in networks, albeit from different perspectives.
