  • Ponda, Sameera S.; Johnson, Luke B.; How, Jonathan P. (American Automatic Control Council, 2012-06)
    This research presents a distributed chanceconstrained task allocation framework that can be used to plan for multi-agent networked teams operating in stochastic and dynamic environments. The algorithm employs an approximation ...
  • Kuhn, Fabian; Lynch, Nancy Ann; Oshman, Rotem (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010)
    In this paper we investigate distributed computation in dynamic networks in which the network topology changes from round to round. We consider a worst-case model in which the communication links for each round are chosen ...
  • Ching, ShiNung; Brown, Emery N.; Kramer, Mark A. (American Physical Society, 2012-08)
    Brain electrical stimulation (BES) has long been suggested as a means of controlling pathological brain activity. In epilepsy, control of a spatially localized source, the seizure focus, may normalize neuronal dynamics. ...
  • Frazzoli, Emilio; Ramirez, Jaime L.; Pavone, Marco; Miller, David W. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    In this paper we study distributed control policies for spacecraft formations that draw inspiration from the simple idea of cyclic pursuit. First, we extend existing cyclic-pursuit control laws devised for single-integrator ...
  • Poduri, Sameera; Sukhatme, Gaurav S.; Deshpande, Ajay A.; Rus, Daniela L. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    This paper addresses the problem of coverage control of a network of mobile sensors. In the current literature, this is commonly formulated as a locational optimization problem under the assumption that sensing performance ...
  • Zhu, Minghui; Martínez, Sonia (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2013-01)
    Inspired by current challenges in data-intensive and energy-limited sensor networks, we formulate a coverage optimization problem for mobile sensors as a (constrained) repeated multiplayer game. Each sensor tries to optimize ...
  • Eryilmaz, Atilla; Ozdaglar, Asuman E.; Shah, Devavrat; Modiano, Eytan H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-04)
    In this paper, we provide and study a general framework that facilitates the development of distributed mechanisms to achieve full utilization of multihop wireless networks. In particular, we describe a generic randomized ...
  • Agaskar, Ameya P.; He, Ting; Tong, Lang (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-05)
    The problem of detecting multihop information flows subject to communication constraints is considered. In a distributed detection scheme, eavesdroppers are deployed near nodes in a network, each able to measure the ...
  • Gattami, Ather Said (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    In this paper we study distributed estimation and control problems over graphs under partially nested information patterns. We show a duality result that is very similar to the classical duality result between state ...
  • Dimarogonas, Dimos V.; Frazzoli, Emilio (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-01)
    Event-driven strategies for distributed multi-agent systems are motivated by the future use of embedded microprocessors with limited resources that will gather information and actuate the individual agent controller updates. ...
  • Le Ny, Jerome; Balakrishnan, Hamsa (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    This paper proposes an Eulerian model of traffic flows in the National Airspace System (NAS) and presents a distributed feedback control approach for managing the flows. The main contribution is the development of a model ...
  • Keshet, Aviv; Ketterle, Wolfgang (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-01)
    Atomic physics experiments often require a complex sequence of precisely timed computer controlled events. This paper describes a distributed graphical user interface-based control system designed with such experiments in ...
  • Kassakian, J.G.; Perreault, David J.; Kassakian, John G. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 1997-08)
    This paper introduces a distributed approach to interleaving paralleled power converter cells. Unlike conventional methods, the distributed approach requires no centralized control, automatically accommodates varying numbers ...
  • Sorin, Fabien; Lestoquoy, Guillaume; Danto, Sylvain; Joannopoulos, John D.; Fink, Yoel (Optical Society of America, 2010-05)
    We report on a photoconductive fiber that supports decaying and convex electrical potential profiles capable of localizing a point of illumination, and propose a scheme to perform distributed optical sensing.
  • Roozbehani, Mardavij; Megretski, Alexandre; Frazzoli, Emilio; Feron, Eric (Spring Berlin/Heidelberg, 2008-07)
    In previous works, the authors introduced a framework for software analysis, which is based on optimization of Lyapunov invariants. These invariants prove critical software properties such as absence of overflow and ...
  • Lobel, Ilan; Ozdaglar, Asuman E.; Feijer Rovira, Diego Francisco (Springer-Verlag, 2011-06)
    We study distributed algorithms for solving global optimization problems in which the objective function is the sum of local objective functions of agents and the constraint set is given by the intersection of local ...
  • Jadbabaie, Ali; Ozdaglar, Asuman E.; Zargham, Michael (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-12)
    Most existing work uses dual decomposition and subgradient methods to solve network optimization problems in a distributed manner, which suffer from slow convergence rate properties. This paper proposes an alternative ...
  • Wei, Ermin; Ozdaglar, Asuman E.; Jadbabaie, Ali (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
    Most existing work uses dual decomposition and subgradient methods to solve Network Utility Maximization (NUM) problems in a distributed manner, which suffer from slow rate of convergence properties. This work develops an ...
  • Jiang, Libin; Shah, Devavrat; Shin, Jinwoo; Walrand, Jean (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-11)
    This paper provides proofs of the rate stability, Harris recurrence, and ε-optimality of carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) algorithms where the random access (or backoff) parameter of each node is adjusted dynamically. ...
  • Boerkoel, James; Durfee, Edmund H. (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, 2013-05)
    This research focuses on building foundational algorithms for scheduling agents that assist people in managing their activities in environments where tempo and complex activity interdependencies outstrip people's cognitive ...
