Abstract

This tutorial paper provides a comprehensive characterization of information structures in team decision problems and their impact on the tractability of team optimization. Solution methods for team decision problems are presented in various settings where the discussion is structured in two foci: The first is centered on solution methods for stochastic teams admitting state-space formulations. The second focus is on norm-optimal control for linear plants under information constraints.
