Swarm Stability and Optimization

US$ 159.00
Swarming species such as flocks of birds or schools of fish exhibitfascinating collective behaviors during migration and predatoravoidance. Similarly, engineered multi-agent dynamic systems such as groups of autonomous ground, underwater, or air vehicles ("vehicle swarms") exhibit sophisticated collective behaviors while maneuvering.In this book we show how to model and control a wide range of suchmulti-agent dynamic systems and analyze their collective behaviorusing both stability theoretic and simulation-based approaches. Inparticular, we investigate problems such as group aggregation, socialforaging, formation control, swarm tracking, distributed agreement,and engineering optimization inspired by swarm behavior.
