Distributed Optimization for Multiagent Systems: An Edge-Based Fixed-Time Consensus Approach.

Summary of "Distributed Optimization for Multiagent Systems: An Edge-Based Fixed-Time Consensus Approach."

This paper deals with the problem of distributed optimization for multiagent systems by using an edge-based fixed-time consensus approach. In the case of time-invariant cost functions, a new distributed protocol is proposed to achieve the state agreement in a fixed time while the sum of local convex functions known to individual agents is minimized. In the case of time-varying cost functions, based on the new distributed protocol in the case of time-invariant cost functions, a distributed protocol is provided by taking the Hessian matrix into account. In both cases, stability conditions are derived to ensure that the distributed optimization problem is solved under both fixed and switching communication topologies. A distinctive feature of the results in this paper is that an upper bound of settling time for consensus can be estimated without dependence on initial states of agents, and thus can be made arbitrarily small through adjusting system parameters. Therefore, the results in this paper can be applicable in an unknown environment such as drone rendezvous within a required time for military purpose while optimizing local objectives. Case studies of a power output agreement for battery packages are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the theoretical results.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The study of systems which respond disproportionately (nonlinearly) to initial conditions or perturbing stimuli. Nonlinear systems may exhibit "chaos" which is classically characterized as sensitive dependence on initial conditions. Chaotic systems, while distinguished from more ordered periodic systems, are not random. When their behavior over time is appropriately displayed (in "phase space"), constraints are evident which are described by "strange attractors". Phase space representations of chaotic systems, or strange attractors, usually reveal fractal (FRACTALS) self-similarity across time scales. Natural, including biological, systems often display nonlinear dynamics and chaos.
