This paper raises a quite general problem: how to characterize necessary conditions of bounded convergence, namely the divergence conditions, of a consensus-based time synchronization (CBTS) algorithm over a networkwith random communication delays.We firstly present a unified structural model of CBTS algorithms. Then, we fit different CBTS algorithms, such as DCTS, ATS, WMTS and LSTS, into the same structural model with just different algorithm parameters. To characterize divergence conditions… CONTINUE READING
