Network Synchronization and Consensus Regions in a Multi-Agent System

Nuria DE LA PARRA, Guillermo REGUERA, Juan José SALVO, Óscar SÁNCHEZ

Abstract


Two problems related to complex network systems are explained in this paper. These two main problems are: consensus and network synchronization. Both have been studied separately in previous years but only a few people have studied these two problems together as one. Our intention in this article is to show how these two problems might ‘work’ together by simulating a network system with routers and agents, we will try to show how agents must negotiate and communicate in order to achieve their aim.
