Optimization and Cooperative Control Strategies Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Cooperative Control and Optimization

Cooperative, collaborating autonomous systems are at the forefront of research efforts in numerous disciplines across the applied sciences. There is constant progress in solution techniques for these systems. However, despite this progress, cooperating systems have continued to be extremely difficul...
