Modeling and Control of Complex Networked Systems

Description

Complex networked systems refer to networks of interacting agents, which have been actively studied due to their fundamental scientific, technological, financial, and societal significance. The commonly studied complex networks include but are not limited to social networks, communication networks, sensor networks, actuator networks, economic networks, transportation networks, biological networks, power networks, and autonomous robot networks.

This special issue focuses on modeling and control of complex networked systems. We invite original contributions on a variety of topics for this special issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Mathematical modeling and estimation of network topology
  • Mathematical modeling of network dynamics
  • Models for complex networks
  • Consensus and swarming of multi-agent systems
  • Synchronization of complex networks
  • Pinning control of complex networks
  • Controllability and observability of complex networks
  • Distributed extremum seeking control for multi-agent systems
  • Distributed diagnosis and fault tolerant control
  • Distributed identification of networked multi-agent systems
  • Distributed cooperative control with disturbances and unmodeled dynamics
  • Distributed cooperative control under communication constraints
