Over the past several years, cooperative control and optimization has unquestionably been established as one of the most important areas of research in the military sciences. Even so, cooperative control and optimization transcends the military in its scope - having become quite relevant to a broad class of systems with many exciting commercial applications. One reason for all the excitement is that research has been so incredibly diverse - spanning many scientific and engineering disciplines. This latest volume in the "Cooperative Systems" book series clearly illustrates this trend towards diversity and creative thought. It's no wonder, cooperative systems are among the hardest systems control science has endeavored to study, hence creative approaches to modeling, analysis, and synthesis are a must.

Audience: This volume is suitable for faculty, graduate students, and researchers in optimization and control, computer science and engineering.
