Modeling random flocks through Generalized Factor Analysis
2013 (English)In: 2013 European Control Conference, ECC 2013, EUCA , 2013, 2421-2426 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, we study modeling and identification of stochastic systems by Generalized Factor Analysis models. Although this class of models was originally introduced for econometric purposes, we present some possible applications of engineering interest. In particular, we show that there is a natural connection between Generalized Factor Analysis models and multi-agents systems. The common factor component of the model has an interpretation as a flocking component of the system behavior.
