# Bipartite consensus of multi‐agent systems over signed graphs: State feedback and output feedback control approaches

@article{Zhang2017BipartiteCO, title={Bipartite consensus of multi‐agent systems over signed graphs: State feedback and output feedback control approaches}, author={Hongwei Zhang and Jie Chen}, journal={International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control}, year={2017}, volume={27}, pages={14 - 3} }

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…
