  • Abstract
  • We study state consensus control over time-varying graphs for discrete-time multi-agent systems. The agent dynamics are assumed to have poles only on the unit circle, and time-varying graphs can be directed, assumed to satisfy an inequality condition, and be uniformly connected. It will be shown that the state consensus can be achieved asymptotically under some mild conditions. Our results are illustrated by two numerical examples.
  • Biography
  • Guoxiang Gu received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, in 1988. From 1988 to 1990, he was with the Department of Electrical Engineering, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, as a Visiting Assistant Professor. Since 1990, he joined Louisiana State University (LSU), Baton Rouge, where he is currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. His research interests include networked control systems, system identification, and statistical signal processing. He authored two books, and published over 70 archive journal papers, plus numerous book chapters, and conference papers. He has held visiting positions at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and in Southwest Jiaotong University of P.R. China. He served as an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control from 1999 to 2001, SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization from 2006 to 2009, and Automatica from 2006 to 2012, and will serve again as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control from 2018-2010. He is presently the F. Hugh Coughlin/CLECO distinguished professor of electrical engineering at LSU, and Fellow of IEEE.
