This paper is devoted to the approximate consensus problem for stochastic networks of nonlinear agents with switching topology, noisy, and delayed information about agent states. A local voting protocol with nonvanishing (e.g., constant) step size is examined under time-varying environments of agents. To analyze dynamics of the closed-loop system, the so-called method of averaged models is used. It allows us to reduce analysis complexity of the closed-loop stochastic system. We derive the upper… CONTINUE READING
