MULTIAGENT DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS
JINHU LÜ AND MACIEJ J. OGORZALEK
Abstract. Over the past decade, the consensus of
multiagent systems has received an increasing attention in various
fields, such as mathematics, physics, biology, and engineering
sciences. There are numerous results reported on the consensus
of multiagent systems. Now it is necessary to review the recent
advances in consensus of multiagent systems. This paper firstly
reviews the main mathematical models of multiagent systems,
including Boids model, Vicsek model, and Couzin-Levin model.
Moreover, this paper reviews the main advances in the
consensus of multiagent systems, including the linear local updating
rules, nonlinear local updating rules, and leader and
asymmetric matrix cases.
