We address a consensus control problem for networks that have multiple dense areas with sparse interconnection structure. The sparsity pattern in such networks naturally gives rise to a time-scale separation in its dynamics, whereby nodes inside an area synchronize over a fast time-scale while the areas themselves synchronize over a slow time-scale. Our(More)
We address a control problem for networks that have multiple dense clusters with sparse interconnection structure. By making use of the time-scale separation properties of such networks, we design state-feedback controllers at the cluster level to guarantee stability in the presence of time varying delays in the inter-cluster feedback channels. A key(More)
We solve the problem of output feedback stabilization of a class of nonlinear systems, which may have unstable zero dynamics. We allow for any globally stabilizing full state feedback control scheme to be used as long as it satisfies a particular ISS condition. We show semi-global stability of the origin of the closed-loop system and also the recovery of(More)
Systems that communicate through networks are ubiquitous in this day and age. The complexity of such systems is continuously increasing as a result of the decreasing cost of communication (with the prevalence of the internet for example) and the growing number of smart devices used for monitoring and actuation. There is also, on the other hand, an(More)
