Multi-Agent Reinforcement Learning (MARL) is a very interesting research area, which has strong connections with single-agent RL, multi-agent systems, game theory, evolutionary computation and optimization theory.

This is a collection of research and review papers of multi-agent reinforcement learning (MARL). The Papers are sorted by time. Any suggestions and pull requests are welcome.

The sharing principle of these references here is for research. If any authors do not want their paper to be listed here, please feel free to contact Lantao Yu (Email: lantaoyu [AT]
