Description

Consensus Tracking of Multi-Agent Systems with Switching Topologies takes an advanced look at the development of multi-agent systems with continuously switching topologies and relay tracking systems with switching of agents. Research problems addressed are well defined and numerical examples and simulation results are given to demonstrate the engineering potential. The book is aimed at advanced graduate students in control engineering, signal processing, nonlinear systems, switched systems and applied mathematics. It will also be a core reference for control engineers working on nonlinear control and switched control, as well as mathematicians and biomedical engineering researchers working on complex systems.

Key Features

  • Discusses key applications and the latest advances in distributed consensus tracking methods
  • Offers a clear and comprehensive overview on the recent development of multi-agent systems with switching topologies
  • Offers graduate students and beginning engineers a core reference on complex systems analysis and cooperative control
