We study, in the fluid flow framework, the cooperative dynamics of a buffered production line in which the production rate of each work-cell does depend on the content of its adjacent buffers. Such state dependent fluid queueing networks are typical for people based manufacturing systems where human operators adapt their working rates to the observed(More)
In this paper, we present a distributed control strategy, enabling agents to converge onto and travel along a consensually selected curve among a class of closed planar curves. Individual agents identify the number of neighbors within a finite circular sensing range and obtain information from their neighbors through local communication. The information is(More)
We construct a model of innovation diffusion that incorporates a spatial component into a classical imitation-innovation dynamics first introduced by F. Bass. Relevant for situations where the imitation process explicitly depends on the spatial proximity between agents, the resulting nonlinear field dynamics is exactly solvable. As expected for nonlinear(More)
