The purpose of this short paper is to provide a theoretical an lysis for the consensus problem under nonlinear protocols. A main contribution of t his work is to generalize the previous consensus problems under nonlinear protocols for networks with undirected graphs to directed graphs (information flow). Our the oretical result is that if the directed graph is strongly connected and the nonlinear prot ocol is strictly increasing, then consensus can be realized. Some simple examples are als o… CONTINUE READING
