Summary of "Distributed zero-sum differential game for multi-agent systems in strict-feedback form with input saturation and output constraint."

This paper investigates the distributed differential game tracking problem for nonlinear multi-agent systems with output constraint under a fixed directed graph. Each follower can be taken as strict-feedback structure with uncertain nonlinearities and input saturation. Firstly, by utilizing the command filtered backstepping technique, the distributed tracking control problem of multi-agent systems in strict-feedback form can be transformed into an equivalent distributed differential game problem of tracking error dynamics in affine form by designing a distributed feedforward tracking controller, in which neural networks (NNs) and the auxiliary system are introduced to deal with the unknown nonlinearities and input saturation, respectively. Especially, a novel barrier Lyapunov function (BLF) is firstly introduced to tackle with the output constraint. Subsequently, by using adaptive dynamic programming (ADP) technique, the distributed zero-sum differential game strategy is derived, in which a critic network is constructed to approximate the cooperative cost function online with a novel updating law. Therefore, the whole distributed control scheme not only guarantees the closed-loop signals to be cooperatively uniformly ultimately bounded (CUUB), but also ensures the cooperative cost function to be minimized. Meanwhile, the output constraint and input saturation are not violated. Finally, simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A multi-function neuropeptide that acts throughout the body by elevating intracellular cyclic AMP level via its interaction with PACAP RECEPTORS. Although first isolated from hypothalamic extracts and named for its action on the pituitary, it is widely distributed in the central and peripheral nervous systems. PACAP is important in the control of endocrine and homeostatic processes, such as secretion of pituitary and gut hormones and food intake.

Institutional systems consisting of more than one health facility which have cooperative administrative arrangements through merger, affiliation, shared services, or other collective ventures.

Theoretical construct used in applied mathematics to analyze certain situations in which there is an interplay between parties that may have similar, opposed, or mixed interests. In a typical game, decision-making "players," who each have their own goals, try to gain advantage over the other parties by anticipating each other's decisions; the game is finally resolved as a consequence of the players' decisions.

A game in which a round inflated ball is advanced by kicking or propelling with any part of the body except the hands or arms. The object of the game is to place the ball in opposite goals.
