Discrete-Time Distributed Extremum-Seeking Control Over Networks With Unstable Dynamics

The main contribution of this paper is to show that the distributed agents can effectively minimize the unmeasured total cost of extremum-seeking control.

Distributed control of multi-agent systems using extremum seeking

A distributed proportional-integral extremum seeking control technique is designed to tackle problems over unknown networks to solve distributed control and optimization problems of multi-agent systems to achieve global objectives.

Distributed Extremum-Seeking Control with Applications to High-Altitude Balloons

A distributed version of extremum-seeking control which allows large-scale systems to be optimized without models and with minimal computing power is developed and an interesting application of distributed ESC is considered: formation control of high-altitude balloons for high-speed wireless internet.

Hybrid online learning control in networked multiagent systems: A survey

A comprehensive survey of the current state of the art in the area of online learning control in multiagent systems is given, presenting an overview of the different types of problems that can be addressed, as well as the most representative control architectures found in the literature.

Distributed Control of High-Altitude Balloon Formation by Extremum-Seeking Control

This paper shows that distributed extremum-seeking control (ESC) can be used to control the balloon formation, based on the minimization of a cost function and does not require a model of wind currents or Internet users.

Global Social Cost Minimization With Possibly Nonconvex Objective Functions: An Extremum Seeking-Based Approach

Through Lyapunov stability analysis, it is shown that the proposed method enables the decision variable to converge to a neighborhood of theglobal minimum point if the conditions on the network connectivity, the existence of unique global minimum and achievability of the global minimum are satisfied.



Distributed extremum seeking for real-time resource allocation

A distributed extremum seeking control, designed to perform real-time resource allocation in multi-agent systems (MAS), that combines ideas from recent evolutionary game theory dynamics and the classic extremumseeking control to ensure convergence to an optimal allocation.

An analytic framework for decentralized extremum seeking control

A set of sufficient conditions under which decentralized extremum-seeking control schemes exhibit semi-global practical asymptotic stability with respect to an equilibrium point which is parameterized by the collective optimizer is provided.

Distributed Subgradient Methods for Multi-Agent Optimization

The authors' convergence rate results explicitly characterize the tradeoff between a desired accuracy of the generated approximate optimal solutions and the number of iterations needed to achieve the accuracy.

Robust and adaptive design of numerical optimization-based extremum seeking control


This paper addresses the problem of parameter convergence in adaptive extremum seeking control design. An alternate version of the popular persistence of excitation condition is proposed for a class

On non-local stability properties of extremum seeking control

Nash Equilibrium Seeking in Noncooperative Games

This work presents the first application of extremum seeking with projection to ensure that the players' actions remain in a given closed and bounded action set in static, noncooperative games with N players.
