Networked Dynamical Systems Group

5 Networked Agents 

The Networked Dynamical Systems Group at the University of California, Berkeley develops design and analysis techniques for desirable dynamical behaviors of complex systems with many interacting components. To overcome the challenges associated with the complexity and size of the models describing such systems, our approach is to exploit the structural properties of the components and their interconnection. Structure indeed plays a major role in shaping the network dynamics. Analysis tools that recognize and take advantage of structure avoid undue conservatism in predicting dynamical properties. Likewise, feedback designs that exploit structure work in harmony with inherent system properties rather than override them. Current application areas include synthetic biology, multi-agent systems, and traffic networks.
