I'm pleased to learn that our latest paper is now available on the Automatica website:

Thanks to Paul Trodden for all his hard work on this paper, which reports on his PhD findings on how inter-agent cooperation can improve performance, e.g. by breaking deadlocks between greedy agents. Congratulations as well to Paul on his recent move to the University of Sheffield's Automatic Control and Systems Engineering department.
