2008 IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control  
Index Terms-LaSalle's invariance principle, multi-agent consensus, switched linear systems, weak common quadratic Lyapunov function.  ...  Unlike most existing results in which each switching mode in the system needs to be asymptotically stable, this paper allows that the switching modes are only Lyapunov stable.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thank an anonymous reviewer for the very detailed comments on the proof of the main result.  ...

Effects of Delay in Multi-Agent Consensus and Oscillator Synchronization

Antonis Papachristodoulou, Ali Jadbabaie, Ulrich Münz
2010 IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control  
In this paper, we consider what effect multiple, noncommensurate (heterogeneous) communication delays can have on the consensus properties of large-scale multi-agent systems endowed with nonlinear dynamics  ...  We show that the structure of the delayed dynamics allows functionality to be retained for arbitrary communication delays, even for switching topologies under certain connectivity conditions.  ...  In particular the Lyapunov-Razumikhin function used for the delayed case (8) is the same as the Lyapunov function (4) used for the undelayed system.  ...
