Abstract [en]

This paper discloses the similarities between the condition for realizing cluster synchronization and that for uncontrollability in diffusively coupled multi-agent networks, both of which are built upon the characteristics of the networks' topologies. We first generalize the notions of equitable partitions and almost equitable partitions to make them applicable to directed, weighted graphs. Consequently, we are enabled to characterize the controllable subspace of a given diffusively coupled multi-agent system using graph theoretic ideas. After comparing the condition to realize cluster synchronization and the condition for the network to be controllable, we conclude that those diffusively coupled multi-agent networks that are not controllable usually realize cluster synchronization asymptotically. Simulation results are provided to illustrate the theoretical results.
