A consensus-based distributed algorithm is described for solving a linear algebraic equation. Unlike a previously proposed algorithm for solving the same problem, the one proposed in this paper does so with any arbitrary initialization. In addition, the algorithm contains design parameters which may be chosen to optimize convergence rate.
