We introduce a class of triangulated graphs for algebraic representation
of formations that allows us to specify a mission cost for a group of vehicles. This representation plus the navigational information allows us to formally specify and solve tracking problems for groups of vehicles in formations using an optimization-based approach. The approach is illustrated using a collection of six underactuated vehicles that track a desired trajectory in formation.
