ISBN 1-85233-428-2, Recommended Retail Price: EUR 79,95

This book is the first to provide a comprehensive survey of the
computational models and methodologies used for studying the evolution
and origin of language and communication. Comprising contributions
from the most influential figures in the field, it presents and
summarises the state-of-the-art in computational approaches to
language evolution, and highlights new lines of development.
Essential reading for researchers and students in the fields of
evolutionary and adaptive systems, language evolution modelling and
linguistics, it will also be of interest to researchers working on
applications of neural networks to language problems.

Furthermore, due to the fact that language evolution models use
multi-agent methodologies, it will also be of great interest to
computer scientists working on multi-agent systems, robotics and
internet agents.
