About this book

This book provides a state-of-the-art overview on the dynamics and coevolution in multi-level strategic interaction games. As such it summarizes the results of the European CONGAS project, which developed new mathematical models and tools for the analysis, prediction and control of dynamical processes in systems possessing a rich multi-level structure and a web of interwoven interactions among elements with autonomous decision-making capabilities.


The framework is built around game theoretical concepts, in particular evolutionary and multi-resolution games, and includes also techniques drawn from graph theory, statistical mechanics, control and optimization theory. Specific attention is devoted to systems that are prone to intermittency and catastrophic events due to the effect of collective dynamics.

About the authors

Konstantin Avrachenkov received Master degree in Control Theory from St. Petersburg State Polytechnic University (1996), Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from University of South Australia (2000) and Habilitation (Doctor of Science) from University of Nice Sophia Antipolis (2010). Currently, he is a Director of Research at Inria Sophia Antipolis, France. He is an associate editor of International Journal of Performance Evaluation, Stochastic Models, Probability in the Engineering and Informational Sciences and ACM TOMPECS . His main research interests are Markov processes, singular perturbation theory, queueing theory, mathematical programming, game theory and performance evaluation of communication networks.

Francesco De Pellegrini is full professor at the University of Avignon. He received the Ph.D. degree in 2004 in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Padova, Italy. He has published more than 100 papers in conference and journals and received 2 best paper awards. He has been working on several subjects in the domain of computer science and networks. His interests are algorithms on graphs, epidemics and gossip processes, stochastic control of networks and game theory. He has promoted and chaired  several conferences in the field of networking and computer science. 


Huijuan Wang is currently a tenured assistant professor in the Multimedia Computing Group at Delft University of Technology. She received the M.Sc. degree (cum laude) and Ph.D. degree (cum laude) in Electrical Engineering from the Delft University of Technology in 2005 and 2009, respectively. She has been a visiting scientist in the Department of Physics at Boston University since 2011 and in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University for the period April-August 2015. Her main research areas are performance analysis of complex networks and systems ranging from technological networks, economical systems to brain networks, modelling, prediction and control of dynamic processes e.g. viral spreading, opinion formation and cascading failures on multi-layer interdependent networks.


Dr. Altman (IEEE fellow) has been a researcher at INRIA, France since 1990. He has been in editorial boards of many journals such as IEEE/ACM ToN, Wireless Networks, Computer Networks,  Computer Communications, SIAM J. of Control and Optimisation.
