Abstract : "This paper investigates the consensus problem of continuous-time leader-following nonlinear multi-agent
systems with time-varying communication delay via reliable control. The parameter uncertainty is assumed to be
bounded in given compact sets. With certain assumptions on the dynamic nonlinearity and underlying topology,
the sufficient conditions are derived in terms of linear matrix inequality (LMI) by using a suitable Lyapunov-
Krasovskii functional (LKF). It is ensure that the leader-following consensus can be achieved under the proposed
reliable control scheme. Finally, numerical simulation results are presented to demonstrate the theoretical results."
