Publisher Comments:

Optical networks epitomize complex communication systems, and they comprise the Internet's infrastructural backbone. The first of its kind, this book develops the mathematical framework needed from a control perspective to tackle various game-theoretical problems in optical networks. In doing so, it aims to help design control algorithms that optimally allocate the resources of these networks. The book's main focus is a control-theoretic analysis of dynamic systems arising from game formulations with non-separable player utilities and with coupled as well as propagated (modified) constraints. Compared with the conventional static optimization approach, this provides a more realistic model of how optical networks operate. Its methods and techniques could be used to improve networks' functionality and adaptivity, potentially enhancing the
