Practical bipartite synchronization via pinning control on a network of nonlinear agents with antagonistic interactions
This paper studies the synchronization phenomena in a network of heterogeneous nonlinear systems over signed graph, which can be considered as the perturbation of a network of homogeneous nonlinear systems. Assume that the signed graph is structurally balanced, the nonlinear system satisfies one-sided Lipschitz condition, and a leader pins a subset of agents. Under some proper initial conditions of the leader, we derive some conditions under which bipartite synchronization error can be kept arbitrary small by choosing a proper pining scheme. This property is called practical pinning bipartite synchronization as an alternative synchronization notion for network of heterogeneous nonlinear systems over signed graph. Finally, we present a numerical example to illustrate the effectiveness of the obtained results.
