This book reports on the implementation of evolutionary-game theory in the design of distributed optimization-based controllers. First, it discusses how the classical approach of the population games can contribute and complement the design of optimization-based controllers. It shows how the features of the population-game approach can be exploited extending their capabilities in the solution of distributed optimization problems. In addition, density games are studied in order to consider multiple coupled constraints and preserving the non-centralized information requirements. Furthermore, a close relationship is established between the possible interactions among agents in a population with the constrained information sharing among different local controllers. On the other hand, coalitional games are discussed focusing on the Shapley power index. Moreover, the book propose an alternative manner to compute the latter, reducing computational time, and a different way to find it by using distributed communication structures. All the proposed strategies are then tested to solve various control problems, such as the ones related to Barcelona water supply network, multiple continuous stirred tank reactors, system of multiple unmanned aerial vehicles, and a water distribution system. This thesis, examined at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya and Universidad de los Andes, in 2017, received the award for best thesis in control from the control group of the Spanish Committee of Automatic Control (CEA) in the same year
