Abstract : In this paper a distributed adaptive dynamic surface controller is proposed for multi-agent systems under fixed directed graph topologies. The agents have uncertain nonlinear dynamics and are influenced by bounded unknown disturbances. The controller should synchronize the states of all agents with the corresponding states of the nonautonomous leader. It is proved that, with the proposed controller, the synchronization error remains bounded; and the bounds can be arbitrarily decreased by increasing the controller gains. The control rules are designed such that each agent only requires the state information of its neighbors, rendering a distributed control. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated through two simulation examples
