# On Swarm Stability of Linear Time-Invariant Descriptor Compartmental Networks

@article{Cai2014OnSS, title={On Swarm Stability of Linear Time-Invariant Descriptor Compartmental Networks}, author={Ning Cai and Muhammad Junaid Khan}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2014}, volume={abs/1401.3815} }

Swarm stability is studied for descriptor compartmental networks with linear time-invariant protocol. Compartmental network is a specific type of dynamical multi-agent system. Necessary and sufficient conditions for both consensus and marginal swarm stability are presented, which require a joint matching between the interactive dynamics of nearest neighbouring vertices and the Laplacian spectrum of the overall network topology. Three numerical instances are provided to verify the theoretical…
