As a paper to introduce you to the topic:
"Modeling Agents and their Environment," James Odell, H. Van Dyke Parunak,
Mitch Fleischer, and Sven Breuckner, Agent-Oriented Software Engineering
(AOSE) III, F. Giunchiglia, James Odell, Gerhard Weiss, eds., Lecture Notes
on Computer Science volume 2585, Springer, Berlin, 2002, pp 16-31.

I think Renato Levy might also have a paper.
