On Leaderless and Leader-Following Consensus for Heterogeneous Nonlinear Multiagent Systems via Discontinuous Distributed Control Protocol

Fei Wang, Yongqing Yang
2018 Mathematical Problems in Engineering  
This paper is concerned with consensus of heterogeneous nonlinear multiagent systems via distributed control. Both the cases of leaderless and leader-following are systematically investigated.  ...  Different from some existing results, completed consensus can be reached in this paper among heterogeneous multiagent network instead of bounded-consensus.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was jointly supported by the Natural Science Foundation of Jiangsu Province of China under Grant No. BK20161126.  ...
