Mean Field Game (MFG) theory provides tractable strategies for the decentralized control of large scale systems. The power of the formulation arises from the relative tractability of its infinite population McKeanVlasov (MV) HamiltonJacobiBellman equations and the associated MVFokkerPlanckKolmogorov equations, where these are linked by the distribution of the state of a generic agent, otherwise known as the system’s mean field. The resulting decentralized feedback controls yield approximate Nash equilibria and depend only upon an agent’s state and the mean field. Applications of MFG theory are being investigated within engineering, finance, economics and social dynamics, while theoretical developments include existence and uniqueness theory for solutions to the MFG equations, majorminor (MM) agent systems containing asymptotically nonnegligible agents, nonlinear estimation theory for MMMFG systems, and the comparison of centralized (optimal) control and MFG control performance.
