Decoupling Coupled Constraints Through Utility Design

  title={Decoupling Coupled Constraints Through Utility Design},
  author={Na Li and Jason R. Marden},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control},
Several multiagent systems exemplify the need for establishing distributed control laws that ensure the resulting agents' collective behavior satisfies a given coupled constraint. This technical note focuses on the design of such control laws through a game-theoretic framework. In particular, this technical note provides two systematic methodologies for the design of local agent objective functions that guarantee all resulting Nash equilibria optimize the system level objective while also… CONTINUE READING
