Synopses & Reviews
Swarming species such as flocks of birds or schools of fish exhibit
fascinating collective behaviors during migration and predator
From the reviews: "The book is intended as a textbook for a course on multiagent dynamic systems; as a supplementary book in courses on nonlinear control systems, optimization, or discrete-time control systems; or as a reference book for graduate students, researchers, and engineers performing studies or implementation work in the area of multiagent dynamic systems." (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, Vol. 31, October, 2011)
Swarming species exhibit fascinating collective behaviors. Similarly, engineered multi-agent dynamic systems exhibit sophisticated collective behaviors while. In this book we show how to model and control a wide range of such multi-agent dynamic systems.
