Dynamics, Information and Control in Networks

Researchers: Carolina Bergeling, Martin Heyden, Richard Pates, Giacomo Como, Anders Rantzer, Emma Tegling

Large-scale networks play a constantly increasing role in our modern society, e.g., affecting the access to essential services like mobility and energy, influencing the outcome of electoral polls, and determining the quality of the economic system.

The Department hosts a research group on Dynamics, Information, and Control in Networks. The focus of this group is on the mathematical foundations of large-scale network systems with particular emphasis on issues related to their resilience, centrality, and scalability. Applications include cyber-physical systems, transportation networks, as well as social and economic networks.

One project is focused on transportation networks, with publications about decentralized traffic signal control and distributed dynamic tolls.

Another project studies the interplay between economics and traffic flows in transport networks. We will study exchange equilibria in traffic networks and network dynamics in presence of human decision makers. The goal is to gain deeper understanding of, and be able to exploit, the interaction between node demands and network flows.
