Engineering systems are highly distributed collective systems—decisions, information, and objectives are distributed throughout—that have humans in the loop, and thus decisions may be influenced by socioeconomic factors. Engineering systems emphasize the potential of control and games beyond traditional applications. Game theory can be used to design incentives to obtain socially desirable behaviors on the part of the players, for example, a change in the consumption patterns on the part of the “prosumers” (producers-consumers) or better redistribution of traffic.
This unique book addresses the foundations of game theory, with an emphasis on the physical intuition behind the concepts, an analysis of design techniques, and a discussion of new trends in the study of cooperation and competition in large complex distributed systems.
This book is intended for undergraduate and graduate students and researchers in industrial, aeronautical, manufacturing, civil, mechanical, chemical, and electrical engineering. It is also designed for social scientists interested in quantitative methods for sociotechnical systems, biologists working on adaptation mechanisms and evolutionary dynamics, and physicists working on collective systems and synchronization phenomena.
About the Author
Dario Bauso is Reader in Automatic Control and Systems Engineering in the Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering at the University of Sheffield (UK) and Associate Professor of Operations Research in the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Chimica, Gestionale, Informatica, Meccanica at the University of Palermo (Italy). From 2012 to 2014 he was Research Fellow in the Department of Mathematics, University of Trento (Italy). He was a visiting scholar in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, UCLA, 2001–2002; a short-term visiting scholar in the Department of Automatic Control, Lund University (Sweden) and in the Laboratory of Information and Decision Systems, MIT, 2010; and a visiting lecturer in the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, and in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London, 2013. He is a member of the Conference Editorial Board of the IEEE Control Systems Society and Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, IFAC Automatica, and Dynamic Games and Applications. He was general chair of the 6th Spain, Italy, and Netherlands Meeting on Game Theory (SING 6). His research interests are in the field of optimization, optimal and distributed control, and game theory.
