Networked Systems


The research on networked systems at Caltech takes a broad, interdisciplinary view on the topic. We focus not only on traditional communication networks and distributed systems (e.g., network protocol design, cloud computing, data centers, multi-agent systems), but also on the control and dynamics of networked systems in applications ranging from power/energy to economics to social contexts. Our work strives for rigor and relevance, and thus our faculty and students both do fundamental, mathematical work and build systems and prototypes.
