Visible to the public Understanding Ultrafast Instabilities in a Global Cyber-Physical System

Abstract: Most future CPS systems will represent a complex, messy mix of hardware, software and human interactions - and may produce dangerous instabilities quicker than some external controller can react. The specific focus and motivation of this project concerns modeling and understanding the dynamics of such CPS that are large and evolve in a decentralized way due to changing market conditions, yielding a system comprising many heterogeneous components that may have incompatible communication protocols (e.g.
