3APL (A Programming Language for Agents) is a high-level programming language designed to develop multi-agent systems. It integrates the AgentSpeak(L) agent-oriented programming language framework with modal logic, focusing on both practical applications and sound theoretic foundations. 3APL has syntax and semantics extensions that allow agents to reason about possibly incorrect beliefs, communication actions that capture synchronous communication, and time primitives that define temporal knowledge updates. This powerful language supports complex reasoning tasks found in distributed artificial intelligence and allows software engineers to implement sophisticated behaviors for individual agents within a system.
