In this paper, we consider a multi-agent consensus problem with an active leader and variable interconnection topology. The state of the considered leader not only keeps changing but also may not be measured. To track such a leader, a neighbor-based local controller together with a neighbor-based state-estimation rule is given for each autonomous agent.(More)
In this paper, we consider a leader-following consensus problem of a group of autonomous agents with time-varying coupling delays. Two different cases of coupling topologies are investigated. At first, a necessary and sufficient condition is proved in the case when the interconnection topology is fixed and directed. Then a sufficient condition is proposed(More)
In this work we investigate collective excitations at the boundary of a recently constructed 4D quantum Hall state. Local bosonic operators for creating these collective excitations can be constructed explicitly. Massless relativistic wave equations with helicity S can be derived exactly for these operators from their Heisenberg equation of motion. For the(More)
—This note addresses a coordination problem of a multiagent system with jointly connected interconnection topologies. Neighbor-based rules are adopted to realize local control strategies for these continuous-time autonomous agents described by double integrators. Although the in-teragent connection structures vary over time and related graphs may not be(More)
As embedded microprocessors are applied widerly to multi-agent systems, control scheduling and time-delay problems arose in the case of limited energy and computational ability. It has been shown that the event-triggered actuation strategy is an effective methodology for designing distributed control of multi-agent systems with limited computational(More)
A number of epidemiological studies have established a link between Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and diabetes mellitus (DM). So, nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) plays an important role in the treatment of AD. However, current PPARγ-targeting drugs such as thiazolidinediones (TZDs) are associated with undesirable side(More)
Collaborative signal processing and sensor deployment have been among the most important research tasks in target tracking using networked sensors. In this paper, the mathematical model is formulated for single target tracking using mobile nonlinear scalar range sensors. Then a sensor deployment strategy is proposed for the mobile sensors and a nonlinear(More)
We study the pairing symmetry of a two-orbital J1-J2 model for FeAs layers in oxypnictides. We show that the mixture of an intraorbital unconventional s_{x;{2}y;{2}} approximately cos(k_{x})cos(k_{y}) pairing symmetry, which changes sign between the electron and hole Fermi surfaces, and a very small d_{x;{2}-y;{2}} approximately cos(k_{x})-cos(k_{y})(More)
