The paper presents the problem of decentralized control with communication between controllers. It differs from the regularly considered decentralized control problem in that the controllers can communicate information. Major questions are then: What? When? and To Whom? to communicate information. The problem instances of decentralized control with communication between controllers for discrete-event systems and for finite-dimensional linear systems are described in detail.
