报告摘要 :  The interactions of multiple dynamical agents have applications in vehicle formation control, trust propagation in autonomous teams, synchronization phenomena in complex systems, aerospace and satellite coordination, and the relations of multiple interacting human-robotic systems.  The relations between the local feedback control system design for each agent and the restrictions imposed by allowed communication topologies are intriguing and can result in either beneficial emergent behaviors or unexpected detrimental overall performance of the integrated autonomous team. The concept of Optimality provides an organizational principle for behavior that can be exploited to increase the resilience of multiple interacting dynamical agents in communication networks.  In fact, it was shown by Charles Darwin that cognitive learning principles organized along the lines of optimality and resource conservation over long timescales are responsible for the phenomenon of Natural Selection of multiple species.

In this discussion we show that formulating team performance objectives in terms of optimality principles allows the unification of ideas from optimal control and adaptive control by using cognitive reinforcement learning principles.  This leads to a new class of cognitive multi-agent controllers that allow each agent to learn optimal solutions online using real-time measurements of the actions of neighboring agents in the network.  These ideas are rooted in Hamilton’s principle in classical mechanics and allow applications to cooperative multi-player graphical games.  Applications are then made to cyberphysical systems, in particular to the resilient and efficient distributed control of renewable energy microgrids.
