Control over unreliable networks


Visible to the public CPS: Breakthrough: Distributed Computing under Uncertainty: A New Paradigm for Cooperative Cyber-Physical Systems


This project is to develop dynamical models of distributed computation systems that are resilient to noise, unreliable communication and other source uncertainty. The key idea is centered on the development of optimization systems. These are dynamical systems that (solve) stabilize around the optimal solution of a (static) convex optimization problem. If the optimization problem is separable, then the designed dynamic system decomposes into a set of locally interacting dynamic systems.
