      The goal Objective of the course is for the students to be informed about the complex systems that contain set on independent entities (agents), and bout the methodology for modeling and control of such systems.
      The outcome Learning outcomes of the course are for the student to gain he following skills: to form a model of a complex system with a number of agents, to establish efficient and robust form of communication between the agents; to design a control low for a formation of agents with the final goal to accomplish the joint mission.
