This paper studies bipartite consensus problems for continuous‐time multi‐agent system over signed directed graphs. We consider general linear agents and design both state feedback and dynamic output feedback control laws for the agents to achieve bipartite consensus. Via establishing an equivalence between bipartite consensus problems and the conventional consensus problems under both state feedback and output feedback control approaches, we make direct application of existing state feedback… 

Bipartite consensus of multi-agent systems with reduced-order observer-based distributed control protocols

Two distributed output feedback control laws are proposed based on reduced-order observer design, respectively, for solving the bipartite leaderless consensus and bipartites tracking consensus problems.

Weighted Consensus Problem for Multi-agent Systems

In this paper, the concept of consensus is generalized to weighted consensus, by which the bipartite consensus and cluster consensus problems can be unified in the proposed weighted consensus frame.

Bipartite Output Consensus for Heterogeneous Multi-Agent Systems

A dynamical neighbor-based consensus protocol is proposed, which consists of the solution pair of the regulation equation and a homogenous compensator for bipartite output consensus of heterogeneous multi-agent systems over signed graphs.

Bipartite Finite Time and Fixed Time Output Consensus of Heterogeneous Multiagent Systems Under State Feedback Control

The bipartite output consensus problem is solved for heterogeneous linear multi-agent systems (HL-MASs) with cooperative and antagonistic interactions with signed graph to prove the reasonability of the theoretical results.

Sign-consensus of linear multi-agent systems over signed graphs

This paper investigates sign-consensus of linear multi-agent systems, that is the signs of all agents' states achieve consensus. The communication network we consider is a signed graph, which

Bipartite consensus of multi-agent systems with output saturation

This paper builds the equal conditions of bipartite consensus and classical consensus and takes existing conditions for classical consensus problems with output saturation to solve bipartites consensus problemswith output saturation.

Bipartite Consensus for Descriptor Multiagent Systems With Antagonistic Interactions

This brief investigates the bipartite consensus problem for descriptor multi-agent systems under a communication graph with positive and negative weights links and designs an optimal distributed state feedback control by adopting the linear quadratic regulator (LQR) optimal technique.



Bipartite Consensus of Linear Multi-Agent Systems Over Signed Digraphs: An Output Feedback Control Approach

The results show that structural balance property of the graph and an appropriate consensus error information are two crucial factors of bipartite consensus.

An equivalence is established between output feedback bipartite consensus problems and the conventional output feedback consensus problems, which enables a direct application of existing output feedbackensus algorithms to solve bipartites consensus problems.

Bipartite consensus of general linear multi-agent systems

It is shown that for general linear agents, bipartite consensus over signed graphs and ordinary consensus over non negative graphs are equivalent, which indicates that prevailing consensus controllers for nonnegative graphs can be adopted to solve bipartITE consensus problems.

Output-based high-order bipartite consensus under directed antagonistic networks

The implementation provides three cases to validate the effectiveness of the developed criteria for bipartite consensus, which is equivalent to a linear stabilizable and detectable problem by introducing a gauge transformation.

In a consensus protocol an agreement among agents is achieved thanks to the collaborative efforts of all agents, expresses by a communication graph with nonnegative weights. The question we ask in

Consensus of Multiagent Systems and Synchronization of Complex Networks: A Unified Viewpoint

A distributed observer-type consensus protocol based on relative output measurements is proposed and a new framework is introduced to address in a unified way the consensus of multiagent systems and the synchronization of complex networks.

A General Framework for Robust Output Synchronization of Heterogeneous Nonlinear Networked Systems

A general framework for robust output synchronization of a group of networked agents involving design strategies for both perturbed consensus and perturbed regulation problems, subject to a class of small gain conditions is established.

Bipartite flock control of multi-agent systems

This paper addresses the bipartite flock control problem with or without a virtual leader. Using structurally balanced signed graph theory and LaSalle's invariance principle, we prove that the
