Dynamic modeling of discrete leader-following consensus with impulses

Department of Mathematics and Informatics, University of Plovdiv Paisii Hilendarski, 236 Bulgaria Blvd., Plovdiv 4027, Bulgaria

Special Issues: Initial and Boundary Value Problems for Differential Equations

A leader-following consensus of discrete-time multi-agent systems with nonlinear intrinsic dynamics and impulses is investigated. We propose and prove conditions ensuring a leader-following consensus. Numerical examples are given to illustrate effectiveness of the obtained results. Also, the necessity and sufficiency of the obtained conditions are shown.
