|Finite-time Cluster Average Consensus for Networks via Distributed Iterations
International Journal of Control, Automation, and Systems, vol. 15, no. 2, pp.933-938, 2017
Abstract : "In this technical note, we deal with the finite-time cluster average consensus in bidirectional networks.
By designing distributed linear iterations involving stochastic matrices consistent with a network topology, we
show that cluster average consensus can always be achieved in finite time for bidirectional networks containing
cluster-spanning trees. An algorithm for the proposed finite-time cluster average consensus is presented. Numerical
simulations on a realistic social network are presented to illustrate the availability of the obtained theoretical results."
