We survey recent results on controlled particle systems. The control aspect introduces new challenges in the discussion of properties and suitable mean field limits. Some of the aspects are highlighted in a detailed discussion of a particular controlled particle dynamics. The applied techniques are shown on this simple problem to illustrate the basic methods. Computational results confirming the theoretical findings are presented and further particle models are discussed.

Control Strategies for the Dynamics of Large Particle Systems
We survey some recent approaches to control problems for large particle systems. Particle systems are transversal to many applications, ranging from classical physics to social sciences. The temporalExpand
Kinetic description of optimal control problems and applications to opinion consensus
A Boltzmann-type equation based on a model predictive control formulation is introduced and the corresponding Fokker-Planck asymptotic limit is derived and explicit expressions of stationary solutions are given. Expand
Collective Motion
It is demonstrated both numerically and analytically that even in certain one dimensional self-propelled particle systems an ordered phase exists for finite noise levels. Expand
Mean Field Control Hierarchy
In this paper we model the role of a government of a large population as a mean field optimal control problem. Such control problems are constrained by a PDE of continuity-type, governing theExpand
Performance bounds for the mean-field limit of constrained dynamics
In this work we are interested in the mean-field formulation of kinetic models under control actions where the control is formulated through a model predictive control strategy (MPC) with varyingExpand
Mean field games with nonlinear mobilities in pedestrian dynamics
This paper discusses the modeling of the macroscopic optimal control approach and shows how the optimal conditions relate to Hughes model for pedestrian flow and results on the existence and uniqueness of minimizers are provided. Expand

Consistent mean field optimality conditions for interacting agent systems
