Murray}, journal={42nd IEEE International Conference on Decision and Control (IEEE Cat. No.03CH37475)}, year={2003}, volume={1}, pages={504-509 Vol.1} }

We analyze a network of dynamic agents where the topology of the network specifies the information flow between the agents. We present an analysis method for such a system for both consensus and formation stabilization problems. To consider the general features introduced by the information flow topology, we consider the case of agent dynamics being a single integrator. Then we show that the method of analysis can be extended to more general cases of complicated agent dynamics, non-ideal links… Expand
