Networked Systems with Complexities and Their Applications to Engineering

Description

Networked systems are systems with spatially distributed components, sensors, and actuators, connected via a wired or wireless communication network. Recent advances in computing, communication, and control technologies have been fueling the proliferation of networked systems, and many applications of networked systems can be found in chemical process, power systems, traffic systems, and airplanes. Those, in turn, have raised many fundamentally new problems of applied mathematics in engineering. The solvability of these problems will depend largely on existing or renewed mathematical approach in engineering.

The aim of this special issue is to highlight the most significant recent developments on the topics of networked systems, especially networked control systems, multiagent systems, and cyber-physical systems, their modeling, identification, stability analysis, and estimation facing with various problems, such as random communication delay, packet loss, data quantization, saturation, communication constraints, random faults, switched systems, and others. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Networked control systems (mathematical modeling, event-triggered control, stochastic control, fault detection and diagnosis, scheduling algorithm, control and communication codesign, quantized control, nanosensors, multichannel transmission, and so on)
  • Multiagent systems (consensus, cooperation, filtering, flocking, synchronization, pinning control, formation control, evolutionary computation, particle swarm optimization, and so on)
  • Cyber-physical systems (wireless sensor network, internet of things, smart grid, intelligent transportation system, system of system, and so on)
