In the Spring semester I teach the M.Sc. course 227-0216-00L Computational Control.
All the communication happens via Moodle, but you can get in touch directly with me if you have questions on the course and you are not enrolled yet.
Game Theory and Control
In the Fall semester I teach the M.Sc. course 227-0694-00L Game Theory and Control.
Game theory is the study of strategic decision making, and was originally used to solve problems in economics. In this course, we study concepts and methods in non-cooperative game theory and show how these can be used to solve control design problems, emphasizing their possible use in control systems, robotics, and engineering applications.
On similar topics, you can also have a look at our ICRA 2021 workshop on Game-theoretical Motion Planning.
Program - Video recordings - Monograph
These slides are a continuous work in progress, and new versions will be posted as soon as they are available.
Some parts may be missing important details that I typically cover at the blackboard.
Students enrolled in the course at ETH should refer to the material posted on Moodle, as the content of the course may change from year to year.
M.Sc. theses and semester projects
You can see my open thesis proposal on Sirop.
