Modeling and Control of Multi-agent Systems

Massimo Fornasier (Technical University of Munich) and Dante Kalise (Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM))

This minisymposium is oriented towards recent developments in modeling of control of multi-agent systems, together with applications in social dynamics. Over the last years, the study of multi-agent systems has become a topic of increasing interest in mathematics, biology, sociology, and engineering, among many other disciplines. Multi-agent systems are usually modeled as a large-set of particles interacting under simple binary rules, such as attraction, repulsion, and alignment forces. The wide applicability of this setting ranges from modeling the collective behavior of bird flocks, to the study of data transmission over communication networks, including the description of opinion dynamics in human societies, and the formation control of platoon systems. This minisymposium aims at gathering experts working in modeling such systems at micro, meso, macro and multsicale levels, together with researchers addressing control problems over agent-based models.
