              Multiagent systems (MAS) are one of the most exciting and the fastest growing domains in the intelligent resource management and agent-oriented technology, which deals with modeling of autonomous decisions making entities. Recent developments have produced very encouraging result...s in the novel approach of handling multiplayer interactive systems. In particular, the multiagent system approach is adapted to model, control, manage or test the operations and management of several system applications including multi-vehicles, microgrids, multi-robots, where agents represent individual entities in the network. Each participant is modeled as an autonomous participant with independent strategies and responses to outcomes. They are able to operate autonomously and interact pro-actively with their environment. In recent works, the problem of information consensus is addressed, where a team of vehicles communicate with each other to agree on key pieces of information that enable them to work together in a coordinated fashion. The problem is challenging because communication channels have limited range and there are possibilities of fading and dropout. The book comprises chapters on synchronization and consensus in multiagent systems. It shows that the joint presentation of synchronization and consensus enables readers to learn about similarities and differences of both concepts. It reviews the cooperative control of multi-agent dynamical systems interconnected by a communication network topology. Using the terminology of cooperative control, each system is endowed with its own state variable and dynamics. A fundamental problem in multi-agent dynamical systems on networks is the design of distributed protocols that guarantee consensus or synchronization in the sense that the states of all the systems reach the same value. It is evident from the results that research in multiagent systems offer opportunities for further developments in theoretical, simulation and implementations

              By exploiting the synergies among available data, information fusion can reduce data traffic, filter noisy measurements, and make predictions and inferences about a monitored entity. Networked Filtering and Fusion in Wireless Sensor Networks introduces the subject of multi-sensor... fusion as the method of choice for implementing distributed systems. The book examines the state of the art in information fusion. It presents the known methods, algorithms, architectures, and models of information fusion and discusses their applicability in the context of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Paying particular attention to the wide range of topics that have been covered in recent literature, the text presents the results of a number of typical case studies. Complete with research supported elements and comprehensive references, this teaching-oriented volume uses standard scientific terminology, conventions, and notations throughout. It applies recently developed convex optimization theory and highly efficient algorithms in estimation fusion to open up discussion and provide researchers with an ideal starting point for further research on distributed estimation and fusion for WSNs. The book supplies a cohesive overview of the key results of theory and applications of information-fusion-related problems in networked systems in a unified framework. Providing advanced mathematical treatment of fundamental problems with information fusion, it will help you broaden your understanding of prospective applications and how to address such problems in practice. After reading the book, you will gain the understanding required to model parts of dynamic systems and use those models to develop distributed fusion control algorithms that are based on feedback control theory.

              Based on the many approaches available for dealing with large-scale systems (LSS), Decentralized Control and Filtering in Interconnected Dynamical Systems supplies a rigorous framework for studying the analysis, stability, and control problems of LSS. Providing an overall assessm...ent of LSS theories, it addresses model order reduction, parametric uncertainties, time delays, and control estimator gain perturbations. Taking readers on a guided tour through LSS, the book examines recent trends and approaches and reviews past methods and results from a contemporary perspective. It traces the progress of research along three eras: Fundamental era in which the basic conceptual frameworks, major ideas, and operational methodologies are laid down Contemporary era in which several of the workable methods and techniques are established and applied to many application areasAdvanced era in which different high-level schemes and configurations are being developed to meet accelerated technological advancements Focusing on robust, reliable, and/or resilient decentralized design methods based on linear matrix inequalities framework, the author offers suggestions for improvements to current approaches. He addresses the dominating sources of difficulties due to dimensionality, information structure constraints, uncertainties, and time delays. Drawing attention to key issues, the text is supported by proofs, efficient computational methods, end-of-chapter problems, and approximately 1,300 equations.
