Modeling and Optimal Control for a Class of One Dimensional Counter-Swarm Problems with Distributed Point Actuation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperOther


This paper presents a class of counter-swarm problems wherein the mean-field behavior of the swarm is modeled as an infinite dimensional system. This work considers two classes of problems, one in which the spatial distribution of the agents is fixed and one in which it is dynamic and driven by the standard continuity equation in mechanics. The counter-swarm objectives are formulated as optimal control problems and solved numerically using deep Q-networks.
