Abstract : Containment control problems for high-order linear time-invariant multi-agent systems with fixed communication time-delays are investigated. Based on Lyapunov-Krasovskii functional method and the linear matrix inequality (LMI) method, sufcient conditions on the communication digraph, the feedback gains, and the allowed upper bound of the delays to ensure containment control of the multi-agent systems under the different containment control algorithms are given. Finally, numerical simulations are presented to demonstrate theoretical results.
