|Abstract:||This report examines issues arising from the presence of conflicting goals among decentralized controllers. Of primary interest is the role that the Stackelberg strategy can play in the decentralized control problem.
A sampled data Stackelberg coordination scheme is developed in which both conceptual and computational issues are dealt with. Conditions which are sufficient for guaranteeing the existence of a stabilizing Stackelberg equilibrium solution are derived for a simple form of the Stackelberg strategy. Also, the role that the information structure can play in the decentralized control problem is demonstrated and a form of the Stackelberg strategy is developed for designing improved information structures.
