We are interested in assigning a pre-specified number of nodes as leaders in order to minimize the mean-square deviation from consensus in stochastically forced networks. This problem arises in several applications including control of vehicular formations and localization in sensor networks. For networks with leaders subject to noise, we show that the Boolean constraints (which indicate whether a node is a leader) are the only source of nonconvexity. By relaxing these constraints to their… CONTINUE READING
