Second-Order Min-Consensus

  • Yinyan Zhang
  • Shuai Li


In this chapter, we present a second-order min-consensus protocol with provable convergence. It is not trivial to extend the min-consensus result for the first-order case to the second-order one. Under certain conditions, the presented protocol can guarantee global asymptotic min-consensus, even for the case with jointly connected communication graphs. An illustrative example is presented to verify the theoretical results and the efficiency of the presented protocol.
