A framework for robust synchronization in heterogeneous multi-agent networks
2011 (English)In: Proc IEEE Conf Decis Control, 2011, 7268-7274 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
A general framework for the analysis of networks of heterogeneous agents is presented. By modeling each agent as a nominal linear time-invariant system plus a possibly nonlinear perturbation and the interconnection among the agents via a memoryless operator, a general result is offered which ensures robust synchronization of the network to a subspace of R N. The result is applied to the case when the interconnection operator is a constant normal matrix and the perturbations nonlinear. The criterion is reduced to a graphical Popov criterion for the synchronization of the network.
