Coupled Network Systems and Their Collective Behavior

Description

Coupled network systems (CNSs) consist of many small, inexpensive agents, in which each agent is capable of collecting signals, processing information, and communicating with neighboring agents. Due to their wide applications in many fields including mobile sensor networks and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, CNSs have attracted many researchers from different areas of sciences and technologies, ranging from mathematics and physics to computer science. Node collaboration is the key for the success of CNSs due to the fact that each node itself is limited by communication range, power, and processing ability. In the process of the nodes’ signal exchanging, an interesting aspect of the dynamics in CNSs is that certain types of globally collective behavior emerge from local interactions among the nodes. Such behavior arises ubiquitously in biological systems, ecosystems, and physical systems.

This special issue focuses on the dynamics of coupled network systems and their collective behavior, and it aims to bring together the most recent developments and knowledge in some related fields. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Synchronization of complex dynamical networks
  • Consensus of multiagent systems
  • Distributed coordination via adaptive control
  • Synchronization in oscillator networks and power systems
  • Collaboration under communication constraints
  • Delay effects on synchronization and consensus
  • Modeling and control of Boolean control networks
  • Dynamical networks with impulse
  • Filtering and identification problems in complex networks
  • Social network analysis
  • Dynamics in biological systems
