Hierarchical control via augmented Lagrangians. (English) Zbl 0631.93002
Hierarchical control structures are composed of local decision making units and a supremal unit. The present paper deals with a well known hierarchical algorithm based on linearized augmented Lagrangians. An extension of the algorithm to the case of global constraints is given.
